Togo Receives Medical Equipment Support from Germany

(Togo First) - Last week, the Centre des Maladies Infectieuses (CMI) of Kara, Togo, received €400,000 worth of medical equipment from Germany. The equipment includes resuscitation, sterilization, body conservation equipment, IT and office equipment, medical furniture, and small items of equipment and instrumentation.

Germany shipped the equipment to Togo as part of a program to strengthen the African nation’s health system, especially relative to reproductive health and sexual rights. The program is implemented by GIZ-Togo.

The Minister of Health and Public Hygiene, Prof. Moustafa Mijiyawa, presided over the reception ceremony, held at the Institut National de l'Hygiène (INH) in Kara, in the presence of diplomatic personalities.

The Agence Togolaise de Presse (ATOP) reported that the equipment will support prevention efforts through vaccination and the fight against malaria, tuberculosis, and HIV/AIDS. The head of the ambassadorial delegation, Dr. Claudius Fischbach from Germany, stressed the importance of health as a pillar of sustainable development.

Fischbach reiterated Europe's commitment to supporting Togo in its immediate response and long-term strengthening of the health system, in the context of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Togo has nine other CMIs, serving as rapid care centers for epidemic diseases and standard centers in normal times.
