  • UNICEF: Rural outreach on health and human rights in Senegal

    THIÈS, Senegal, 20 May 2010 UNICEF Executive Director Anthony Lake is in Senegal for a global conference on girls education and gender equality. In Dakar earlier this week, he also had the chance to visit rural health centres that are beyond the reach of urban services. Health-care disparities between urban and rural areas in Senegal remain high. It confirmed for me that we cant wait for health systems to work their way out from the centre, said Mr. Lake. We have to be working in the communities as well. There are strong communities. They just need the services to deliver vaccines. The UNICEF-supported non-governmental organization Tostan has established a Community Empowerment Programme in Senegal to teach villagers about womens health and human rights in local languages.

  • In Senegal, Skin-Lightening Remains Popular Despite Health Risks

    The World Health Organization says that a quarter of Senegalese women use skin-lightening products regularly. The products, even those claiming to have so-called "natural" components, can contain mercury, hydroquinone or caustic agents like sodium hydroxide. These are dangerous ingredients that can cause cancer and are potentially disfiguring. Some women in capital city Dakar say the risks are simply the price of beauty.

  • Olivia Wilde in Senegal with 1 Million Health Workers

    RYOT went with Olivia Wilde to Senegal to document first-hand the work of the incredible 1 Million Community Health Workers initiative. Started by Columbia's Earth Institute, the goal of the 1 Million Health Workers Campaign is, quite literally, to scale up to 1 million health workers in sub-Saharan African communities by 2015. By training community members in basic healthcare, family planning, sanitation counseling and providing them with medical supplies, this campaign will reduce maternal and infant death rates, provide HIV/AIDS, Malaria, Tuberculosis treatment and bring essential healthcare to regions in desperate need.

    If the outbreak of Ebola in West Africa has exposed anything, it is the poor health facilities often stagnated due to poor governance in the region. However, in Senegal the government is going the extra mile to improve its innoculation programme for children to reduce the number of fatalities from preventable diseases. Among the challenges is the design of the vaccination coolers which, although specifically made for the task, are not suitable for travel accross the irregular terrain, according to some nurses. Al Jazeera's Nicolas Haque reports from Nioro, Senegal.

    The recent Ebola outbreak laid bare the consequences of weak health care systems in Africa. In the hardest hit countries of Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone, the disease is estimated to have claimed close to 9,000 lives, leading to the collapse of national health systems. Lack of community engagement and fear led to the closure of schools and markets, deepening the blow to already struggling economies. Countries such as Nigeria, Senegal and Mali defeated the virus; preparedness, readiness to treat and swift government action played a critical role in containing the spread of Ebola. What lessons were learned from this outbreak and how can these be leveraged to better prepare health systems for future health crises? How can health systems build greater resilience, engage communities and cont...

The programme works to educate local populations so that they can then choose whether to abandon practices such as early forced marriage and female genital mutilation/cutting, or FGM/C. To date, 4,295 villages in Senegal have declared that they will no longer practice FGM/C. Keur Simbara, which has zero-tolerance for cutting, is one of the most active communities participating in Tostans empowerment programme. As the village women and children danced in celebration of health and human rights, the UNICEF Executive Director joined in, then warmly said goodbye. You are proof, he said, that the world can be changed by one community.
