We Need Your Voice: Demand Open Health Budgets. Save Lives.

Sipho Moyo | ONE | June 25, 2013

Nearly 200,000 ONE members from all over the continent told us earlier this year that accessing quality healthcare is one of Africa’s most urgent development priorities. And there are plenty of reasons why.

Preventable and treatable diseases such as AIDS, TB, and malaria continue to kill more than 2 million people in Africa every year, whilst every day 2,000 children  die from diarrhoea.

What’s so tragic is that we know how to stop these scourges. Over the last few decades, we have learned so much about what it takes to solve global health challenges. Smart planning, effective delivery, public-private partnerships and local innovation can all work together to improve our health. But regardless of where you live, there has to be enough money to fund this work. And that’s where you can step in.
