ONGOING INTERNATIONAL MISSIONS
SUPPORT TO THE TOGO MINISTRY OF HEALTH
Santé Diabète has supported the government of Mali in setting up a diabetes consultation register. This consultation register of people with diabetes was created with the aim of collecting useful information on patients, order to obtain reliable data related to the consultation of patients while feeding the health information system.
The Togolese Ministry of Health, which wanted to develop such a national register, called on Santé Diabète in 2017 for a 7-day expert mission to support this reflection based on the experience and collection tools developed in Mali.
SUPPORT TO THE MINISTRY OF HEALTH AND THE WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION OFFICE OF MAURITIUS
Non-communicable diseases (NCDs) represent the main cause of death (87%) and disability in Mauritius. Four NCDs (cardiovascular disease, cancer, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and diabetes) alone account for 23% of these premature deaths.
In Mauritius, Non Governmental Organizations (NGOs) play a critical role in the society. Establishing lasting partnerships between NGOs and the Ministry of Health is therefore essential to fight against this explosion of NCDs.
This is why the Ministry of Health and Quality of Life (MOHQL), in collaboration with the Mauritius Council of Social Services (MACOSS) and the World Health Organization (WHO), has launched a pilot project, funded by the French government, so that the NGO Santé Diabète supports the development of a comprehensive joint action plan of NGOs identified as active in the field of the fight against NCDs that is in perfect synergy with the strategic frameworks of the Mauritius Ministry of Health and Quality of Life. This action took place from June to November 2019.
