WAEMU Commission helps Togo fight Covid-19

(Togo First) - Yesterday, the West African Economic and Monetary Union (WAEMU) Commission donated supplies and funds to the Togolese State, as part of support to its member States facing the Covid-19.

The supplies, worth nearly CFA 871 million, include masks for health care personnel, and multi-use masks for populations, while the funds came in the form of a symbolic check of CFA 500 million. The country will use the latter to acquire sampling and diagnostic kits.

Both the equipment and the check were received by Mustapha Mijiyawa, the Minister of Health. On the occasion, the official lauded the commission’s support saying “it will reinforce efforts made by the government, under the leadership of the Head of State, and undoubtedly help bolster results achieved by Togo since the pandemic began.” 

It is worth noting that the donation results from various decisions taken by the Conference of Heads of State and Government of the Union, during the extraordinary session held by video-conference on 27 April 2020.
