Congolese President pledge support to WHO
President Denis Sassou Nguesso of Congo has pledged that his country would continue to meet its financial commitments to the WHO.
He called on the international community to ensure sustained financial support to the UN health agency so that it can effectively carry out its mandate of improving the health of the people.
“Congo affirms its willingness to honour all commitments including its contribution to the African Public Health Emergency Fund (APHEF) as well as its regular statutory contributions to WHO,” said the Congolese leader.
This year’s session, under the theme ‘Investing in health for sustainable development,’ will discuss the health of the elderly; the use of eHealth solutions to improve national health systems; strengthening the capacity of national medicines regulatory authorities, and the implementation of WHO’s new guidelines on the use of antiretroviral therapy for HIV prevention and treatment.
