Health: Togo, and four others, get $55M financing from Canada

(Togo First) - Togo, Côte d’Ivoire, Mali, and Senegal will receive $55 million (nearly CFA30 billion) from Canada for five projects related to sexual and reproductive health. 

The fund's provision falls under the Ouagadougou partnership which all four countries are members of. This was disclosed by the Canadian minister for international development, Karina Gould, at the annual session of the Ouagadougou partnership. “The goal is to help eliminate barriers to health services, reproductive and sexual rights, Gould added. 

In the long run, the support should help improve the capacities of around 13 million women and girls by 2030, “to make informed decisions regarding their health.” 

“Family planning has become a key component of policies revolving around the child and maternal health, observed Moustapha Mijiyawa. 

Concerning the Ouagadougou Partnership, it is a transnational organization that regroups nine French-speaking West African countries. Established in 2011, in Burkina Faso, it aims to improve the sexual and reproductive health of women (and girls), including those living with a handicap.
