At EMERGENCY, we knew that we couldn’t stop this year. We did everything we could to make sure we continued providing our medical care, even starting new projects so that we could be there for the most vulnerable people during this pandemic.
#WorldAfricaDay is a crucial moment to call upon the global community to address the the major issues affecting Africa. We must step up to deal with conflicts and poverty, and ensure the protection of the continent’s incredible environment and resources.
Africa’s right to equality starts with Africa’s health.
That is why we work every day in many countries here to help build free, high-quality healthcare systems, with equal access to treatment being the ultimate goal. Medicine based on the principles of human rights is key.
