              Films about Coronavirus

              In Africa and South Asia more than 3 billion people live with little access to intensive care. Their best hope is through knowledge and information, allowing communities to slow the epidemic, protect those most vulnerable, and continue accessing treatment for other deadly illnesses.

              Picturing Health is working in partnership with leading research organisations, as well as UNICEF and NGOs to produce films and public health messages to get the right information to the people who need it.

                La Réponse du Partenariat de Ouagadougou au COVID-19

                L’ampleur de la pandémie du COVID-19 constitue une menace réelle pour les populations de l’Afrique de l’Ouest francophone comme pour les systèmes de santé et les économies des pays membres du Partenariat de Ouagadougou.

                Toutefois, la survenue de cette crise additionnelle dans une région déjà fragilisée par des défis sécuritaires et humanitaires, exige une réponse appropriée du Partenariat du Ouagadougou. Cette réponse du PO, tout en reconnaissant la nécessité de mesures fortes contre le COVID-19, doit préserver les acquis en matière de santé sexuelle et reproductive, et protéger le droit des femmes et des familles à la planification familiale maintenant et après 2020.
