Current international missions
Support to the Ministry of Health of Togo
Santé Diabète supported the government of Mali in setting up a diabetes consultation register. This consultation register for people with diabetes was created in order to collect useful information about patients, but also in order to obtain reliable data related to patient consultation while feeding the health information system.
The Ministry of Health of Togo, which wished 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 at Mali.
Support to the Ministry of Health and the Office of the World Health Organization of Mauritius
Non-communicable diseases (NCDs) are 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 very important role in Mauritian 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 for Social Services (MACOSS) and the World Health Organization (WHO), 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 fight against NCDs which is in perfect synergy with the strategic frameworks of the Ministry of Health and Quality of Life of Mauritius. This action will take place from June to November 2019.
