Landscape

In order to fight efficiently against Non Communicable Diseases (NCDs) in Togo, ANCE-Togo had begun since July to September 2014, advocacy activities to increase the budget for the health sector financing in Togo.

ANCE-TOGO's continuous work since then had led to increasing the budget for the health sector since 2015 by Togo government.

Our teams also started active campaign targeting the minister’s council and the national assembly to increase the health sector budget for 2018. Our teams have met with several ministers including health minister, economy and finance minister and several permanent secretary of ministers.
