GOAL 3: Ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages
THE FACT:Ensuring healthy lives and promoting the well-being for all at all ages is essential to sustainable development. Significant strides have been made in increasing life expectancy and reducing some of the common killers associated with child and maternal mortality. However, many more efforts are needed to fully eradicate a wide range of diseases and address many different persistent and emerging health issues.
WANEP National networks partner with health focus organizations to build community preparedness at the grassroots against a possible and future outbreak of deadly diseases such as the Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) and other diseases with similar symptoms. Through WANEP’s continuous trainings, coaching and mentoring, community members are empowered to mobilize local resources for the rehabilitation of health facilities and facilitate smooth drugs supplies in their localities.
