The campaign, entitled “Dessinons l'avenir” (Let's draw the future), is a joint initiative of Côte d'Ivoire, Germany, the Netherlands and the World Bank. Its goal is to raise at least $800 million in 2023 to fund essential health systems in low- and middle-income countries.
The participation of Côte d'Ivoire as co-organizer of this campaign commits the country to the health of vulnerable populations. An especially important commitment in Africa, where many countries face significant health challenges.
The Prime Minister of Côte d'Ivoire, Patrick Achi, highlighted the importance of the initiative by stating that “robust and equitable health systems are essential elements for sustainable development and economic growth. "There is no better investment."
In fact, this campaign not only seeks to mobilize funds, but also raise awareness about the importance of investing in healthcare. Côte d'Ivoire, by partnering with European countries and the World Bank, wants to highlight the need for global collaboration to address health issues.
The funds raised within the framework of this campaign will help finance essential health services for women, children and adolescents, as well as strengthen the health systems of beneficiary countries.
