THE NGO FEMME BELLE LAUNCHES ITS INFORMATION WEBSITE ABOUT COVID-19

Our 2019 Global Fund Award winner, the NGO Femme Belle, launches its Covid-19 information website.

Mrs Christine Soro, founder of the NGO Femme Belle and the DIGIeWomen School (school dedicated to women on training in digital professions), has launched a website with information on the coronavirus in Gabon: InfosCoronavirusGabon.com.

This site, approved by the Gabonese State, aims at making a synthesis of the Covid19 news and helping the populations on practical information on the pandemic in Gabon, in Africa and in the world.

The data comes from the Ministry of Health of Gabon, of which the NGO and the school are partners, and from the Steering Committee set up to deal with the pandemic with which they work.

The FAM wishes to lend its full support to this solidarity initiative, which is useful in this time of pandemic.

The NGO Femme Belle

As a reminder, during the Sixth Replenishment Conference of the Global Fund in October 2019, the FAM, in partnership with Fondation Mérieux and the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs, launched a call for projects for startups and associations innovating in access to healthcare to fight the three major pandemics in the world (AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria). The winners were selected by a very high level jury committee and the foundation gives them visibility and scientific and financial support.

The NGO Femme Belle, via its Gabonese mobile application allowing the sending of messages for women living with HIV and prevention to avoid contamination, was one of the 3 winners.

RESULTS OF THE CALL FOR PROJECTS AT THE 6th GLOBAL FUND REPLENISHMENT CONFERENCE #ACCELERONSLEMOUVEMENT

The Foundation of the Academy of Medicine (FAM) is a place for sharing and comparing knowledge between all those concerned by major public health issues, to whom it opens, in accordance with its own values and ethics, the doors to excellent medical and scientific knowledge.

It is because it is fully committed to the fight against the 3 major pandemics (AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria) that France, through the President of the Republic, wished to host the 6th Global Fund Replenishment Conference, of which it is one of the founders. The international community has pledged to end epidemics by 2030, to save 16 million lives by raising $14 billion. New threats – such as funding shortfalls or increased resistance to insecticides and drugs – have slowed progress and allowed diseases to regain ground.

The Global Fund now operates in more than 100 developing countries and represents 57% of global funding for malaria, 20% for HIV/AIDS and 65% for tuberculosis, enabling exceptional progress in access to treatment and prevention of epidemics.

The world conference, bringing together the best French and international specialists in these diseases will take place in Lyon on 10 October 2019.

38 donor countries will be represented at the highest level of expertise.

The Foundation of the French Academy of Medicine, in collaboration with the Global Fund and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, aims to be associated with this event through a call for projects for stratups and associations innovating in access to healthcare (in the fight against the three pandemics). The winners were selected by a very high level jury. The foundation gives them visibility and scientific and financial support. A prize will be awarded in 2020 to the 3 organizations that present the most innovative project to fight or raise awareness on its territory.

The FAM warmly thanks several projects that have been applied.
