Système de financement de la santé au Togo

Comité National de Promotion de la Protection Sociale , (2015)


Rapport final, mai 2015
Le présent document est un état des lieux du système de financement de la santé au Togo, un travail inscrit dans le processus d’élaboration d'une stratégie cohérente du financement vers la couverture universelle en santé (SNFS-CSU) dans lequel le pays s’est engagé afin d’assurer l’accès universel de tous à des soins de qualité sans encourir de dépenses catastrophiques.
L’analyse a été effectuée sur la base d’entretiens avec les principaux acteurs du système de santé et d’une revue d’études/rapports et textes législatifs relatifs au financement de la santé et à la protection sociale au Togo. Le travail préparatoire de collecte des données visant à décrire l’architecture du système de financement de la santé a précédé l’atelier de rédaction au cours duquel les acteurs du système ont complété/validé l’analyse de la situation et ont proposé conjointement des pistes potentielles d’orientations stratégiques.

Global leishmaniasis update, 2006–2015: a turning point in leishmaniasis surveillance

World Health Organization (WHO), (2017)


Weekly epidemiological record / Relevé épidémiologique hebdomadaire
22 SEPTEMBER 2017, 92th YEAR / 22 SEPTEMBRE 2017, 92e ANNÉE
No 38, 2017, 92, 557–572
There are 4 main forms of the disease: visceral leishmaniasis (VL, also known as kala-azar); post-kala-azar dermal leishmaniasis (PKDL); cutaneous leishmaniasis (CL); and mucocutaneous leishmaniasis (MCL). While cutaneous leishmaniasis is the most common form of the disease, visceral leishmaniasis is the most serious and can be fatal if untreated. Additionally, leishmaniasis can be classified as anthroponotic or zoonotic depending on whether the natural reservoir of the parasite is human or animal.
This report updates global epidemiological information on VL and CL to 2015, based on the main indicators published in the GHO, as of 1st September 2017.
