French Development Agency (AFD) provides financial support to Togo to fight Covid-19

(Togo First) - The French Development Agency, AFD, will provide Togo XOF141 million (€215,000) to fight the Coronavirus pandemic. 

The funds will in effect be injected into a project that aligns with France’s Covid-19 Santé en Commun scheme which was launched at the beginning of April and is backed by another project aimed at boosting the quality of medical biology services in West Africa (RESAOLAB+). Besides Togo, other beneficiaries of the grant are Benin, Niger, and Guinea. 

In Togo, the project will be put in place at the CHU Campus, through a partnership between the Togolese laboratories directorate and the Mérieux Foundation which combats infectious diseases in developing countries. 

Most of the money provided, it should be emphasized, will partly be used to buy equipment, for diagnostics and treatment, as well as personal protective equipment to ensure the safety of medical staff. 

Another part of the funds will serve to create a platform for sharing documents and counseling decision-makers in the health sector. Lastly, they will help collect data toward assessing the role of laboratories amid the ongoing health crisis.
