Pour la première fois Solthis a été sélectionnée pour bénéficier d’une convention programme de l’AFD d’une durée de 3 ans (2019-2022), visant à financer un ensemble d’actions de terrain et transversales incluant la capitalisation, le plaidoyer, la communication et le suivi-évaluation au service de la lutte contre le VIH/sida en Afrique. Cette Convention Programme couvre des interventions plus spécifiquement au Mali, au Sénégal et en Sierra Leone, mais a aussi vocation à renforcer les capacités des équipes de Solthis dans leur intégralité. Elle repose sur la conjonction de 3 financements : le financement de l’AFD qui vient s’ajouter au financement d’Unitaid pour le projet ATLAS – Autotest VIH, Libre d’Accéder à la Connaissance de son statut- et à la subvention de la Mairie de Paris pour la phase 2 du Projet d’Empowerment des usagers pour une prise en charge du VIH de qualité en Sierra Leone. Solthis se réjouit de cette opportunité de pouvoir associer 3 bailleurs complémentaires pour créer des synergies et un effet de levier dans la mise en œuvre de projets innovants ayant vocation ensuite à déclencher un changement à grande échelle comme ATLAS, tout en poursuivant son travail de capitalisation et de renforcement de ses capacités internes sur quatre thématiques essentielles pour répondre de manière adaptée et pérenne aux besoins en santé des populations les plus vulnérables : - La promotion de la santé et l’empowerment des usager.e.s - L’offre de services - Le renforcement des relations partenariales et des organisations de la société civile - La stratégie de transition et le passage à l’échelle des interventions menées 200.000 personnes devraient se voir proposer un autotest de dépistage du VIH/sida au Sénégal et au Mali, dans le cadre du projet ATLAS. 8000 patients de la file active en Sierra Leone bénéficieront d’une offre de soins de meilleure qualité à l’issue du projet, qui appuiera aussi les équipes soignantes des 20 centres de santé ciblés en Sierra Leone dans le cadre du projet Empower. Les membres et salariés des associations locales soutenues au Mali, au Sénégal et en Sierra Leone ainsi que les représentants des autorités sanitaires régionales et nationales de ces pays bénéficieront également d’un accompagnement et appui technique. On estime à Plus de 230.000 le nombre totale de personnes vivant avec le VIH qui bénéficieront des avancées permises par ce programme.

This Program covers interventions specifically in Mali, Senegal and Sierra Leone, but also aims to strengthen the capacities of all Solthis teams.

Contrôle des médicaments en Afrique Francophone

In French-speaking Africa, the lack of a pharmaceutical drug production unit obliges pharmaceutical wholesalers (public and private) to import almost all of their need for drugs with risks of major defects in pharmaceutical quality. In addition, the absence of a national laboratory to control the quality of functional drugs in line with international standards is a major handicap to the protection of the population and to the pharmaceutical of these developing countries.
