Thematic Areas

Health

Globally, significant progress has been made in improving the health of millions of people, increasing life expectancy, reducing maternal and child mortality, fighting against leading communicable diseases.
However, in sub-Sahara Africa, improvement is slow in all areas mentioned above.
For instance, in Nigeria, over 50% of the population dwell in rural areas. This population does not have access to essential health services. Majority of those who live in suburban and so called urban areas, do suffer a great financial hardship, potentially pushing them into extreme poverty. These populations cannot afford essential health services.

Collective and intensive efforts are required to achieve sustainable universal health coverage, to address the growing burden of communicable diseases (e.g tuberculosis, Hepatis B and A, HIV/AIDS, malaria and worm infestations) and non-communicable diseases (e.g Diabetes, Hypertension and Mental health). Also, to tackle antimicrobial resistance and other determinants of health.
