What it Means to Create a ‘Women’s Health Development Army’

Language: English

I attended the fourth Women Deliver Conference in Copenhagen, Denmark, two weeks ago. I listened to fascinating stories of thousands of impassioned advocates, policymakers, researchers and young people in attendance and shared the lessons from my own experience nationally and globally. Throughout the conference my consistent message was that we need to work together as conscious disruptors of the status quo.

Igniting Change by Investing in Girls and Women

Source: The Huffington Post

Language: English

A decade ago, Ethiopia’s girls and women faced some of life’s most pressing challenges. Cultural traditions resulted in marriage and childbirth among many who had yet to become adults. Access to safe and modern contraceptives was inadequate, preventing many from spacing their births and robbing them of the right to control their bodies. Our largely rural and pastoralist country lacked the necessary infrastructure and skilled health professionals to provide essential services to girls and women.

Closing the Immunization Gap: Bringing Vaccines to Doorsteps of Families and Households

Language: English

Ethiopia’s Health Extension Programme’s door-to-door services, the effectiveness of the defaulters tracing system and our community-based champion approach hold important keys for closing the immunization gap. In line with theme of World Immunization Week, Ethiopia’s game-changer – bringing health services to the doorstep as opposed to a classic health post approach – has become our norm.

Ending Malaria For Good

Source: The Huffington Post

Language: English

In the past 15 years alone, malaria mortality has fallen by 60 percent globally — resulting in an estimated 6.2 million averted deaths. We now have a chance to eliminate the disease and render it powerless, much like polio and smallpox. But we are reminded that our extraordinary advances are fragile and that the fight must continue.

Africa and the Jihadist Threat

Language: English

Co-authored by Olusegun Obasanjo and Wolfgang Ischinger – the importance of Africa’s development to the entire world should be self-evident. And yet, despite the high stakes, Europe – and the international community more broadly – have not devoted the attention and resources that the issue merits.

How Can We Tackle Diabetes?

Source: The Huffington Post

Language: English

Diabetes can be successfully prevented and managed by a healthy lifestyle. When not managed, it can lead to severe organ damage and death. In too many countries, this choice is not up to the individual; it is dependent instead on the quality of regional, country-level and international health systems.
