The ACTION Global Health Advocacy Partnership was very pleased to attend the first ever the Ministerial Conference on Immunization in Africa (MCIA) in February in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.
The world, irrespective of country, region or race should work together to fight TB. Infectious diseases know no borders and can travel widely. We need to step up the fight against TB globally and also develop new vaccines and treatments.
Today, ACTION proudly launched a new scorecard in our accountability series. The ACTION Following the Funding: Nutrition for Growth scorecard was developed to track the ambition and delivery of funding commitments made at the 2013 Nutrition for Growth (N4G) summit.
Having worked as a health advocate for close to a decade now in Nigeria, there is need for more action in the fight against tuberculosis (TB) in Nigeria. As Nigeria joins the rest of the world to mark yet another World Tuberculosis (TB) Day, March 24, 2016, it’s important that all hands be on deck if we are to achieve a TB free world. Nigeria is among the high TB burden countries, with 570,000 new cases each year – more than any other country in Africa.
