Addis Ababa, November 17. -The African Union (AU) on Saturdays emphasized the need for strategic partnerships to increase access to high quality diagnostics towards ensuring universal health coverage on the continent.
According to the UA, the issue is a priority for achieving inclusive and sustainable growth.
However, the continental body said that many diseases are still not being abolished due to deficiencies in detection and treatment in most countries in the region.
These barriers keep Africa from releasing epidemic diseases and compromises the achievement of the HE health agenda, which the agency noted.
The slow number of useful technological innovation; the acquisition and use of inadequate diagnostic data for the benefit of the patient and the program are further challenges.
At the same time, there is inconsistency in laboratory networks, high cost and examination inefficiencies, and inadequate transactions to discuss better prices and terms.
In line with the situation, the AU is committed to contributing to the elimination or elimination of diseases targeted by global health regulatory agencies, such as HIV, including the elimination of mother-to-child transmission, multi- drugs, malaria, viral hepatitis, cervical cancer and other sexually transmitted infections (syphilis, gonorrhea, chlamydia).
HE plans also include reducing barriers to detecting, preventing and treating anonymous diabetes such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes and early cancer. (After taking from Prensa Latina)
