Côte d’Ivoire Country Impact Report
Côte d’Ivoire has a more developed public health system than many of its neighbors, but a series of crises and conflicts between 2000 and 2012 weakened health systems and intensified the inequalities between urban and rural areas. However, progress has been made, largely due to a concentrated effort involving the government and national and international partners, including the Global Fund. The Millennium Development Goals of halting and reversing the spread of HIV and malaria have been met, and the country has recently achieved universal coverage of mosquito nets.
The partnership between the Global Fund, the government of Côte d’Ivoire, the United Nations, the United States President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR), France, and civil society has saved 160,000 lives in Côte d’Ivoire since 2004. The partnership supports programs to treat and prevent HIV, TB and malaria and to build more resilient and sustainable systems for health.
