West African French-speaking countries meet in Lomé to discuss rapid achievement of universal health coverage

(Togo First) - Lomé is currently holding a three-day regional meeting gathering nine West African Francophone countries and top-level experts in the framework of a meeting of the West African Health Organization (WAHO).

The theme of the event which began on September 17 is: “How to achieve universal health coverage faster? Community health officers, a key link.” Through the meeting, the OOAS and other participants will look into how public health officers can contribute to the achievement of this goal by 2030.

Participants will not only mutually share their experience on how to reinforce community agents, but also assess how measures are initiated, how the parliament can support the project, and how other sectors can be involved, in each country,” said Keita Lamidou, representative of the OOAS.

Togo is the first to rely (since 2011) on the community health officers in the framework of this health strategy.

The meeting is financed by the USAID, through the Health Policy Plus (HP+) project. So, major attendants are representatives of the US embassy in Togo, and of the World Health Organization’s office in Togo.
