The rising number of people fleeing conflict and the arrival of thousands of migrants are overwhelming public health facilities in Niger, putting scores of families at risk – including tens of thousands of malnourished children. More than 400,000 people – including some 160,000 children suffering from malnutrition – are now in need of emergency health services in Niger’s Diffa region.
In 2005, Niger’s President “offered his people” the removal of user fees covering ante-natal consultations, children under five years, and caesarian sections. Increased access to health facilities resulted, and many poor people benefited from this subsidy. There was, however, insufficient preparation and inadequate funding mechanisms put in place. Most health facilities were not reimbursed by the State leading to paralysis in services when facilities were unable to buy expensive drugs or lab reagents. Care was free but drugs were often missing The film follows a Nigerien research team investigating the implementation of this policy and shows reactions by different stakeholders.

GUIDAN ROUMDJI, Niger, 5 November 2008 Lying on a bed in the maternity ward of the UNICEF-supported Guidan Roumdji Hospital in eastern Niger, Tchima Abou knew she could have died. The 27-year-old woman had given birth to her sixth child, a girl, at home when she started bleeding and slipped into unconsciousness. Fortunately, she was taken to the district hospital on time. The doctors and nurses there managed to save her life. I cannot believe I am still alive, said Ms. Abou. In Niger, a woman's lifetime risk of dying due to complications caused by pregnancy or childbirth is one in seven. Every year, 14,000 Nigerien mothers die from pregnancy-related causes most of which are preventable and thousands of other women experience injuries, infections, diseases or disabilities that can...

More than 18.7 million people, including four million children, in seven West African countries are at risk of severe malnutrition as a result of the current food crisis in the region. Erratic rainfall, poor harvests from 2011, rising global food prices and political instability in some countries have all combined to create the third major food crisis to hit West Africa in the past ten years. http://cnw.ca/erwL5 Distributed by OneLoad.com
The Rapid Access Expansion Program (RAcE) is a health project implemented by World Vision Niger in partnership with WHO and Government. The program’s main goal is to reduce mortality rates in children under five and stimulate health policy as well as catalyze scale-up. Through this program, lay community health workers have been trained to deliver quality case management of childhood illnesses in the most vulnerable communities. Through the implementation of this program over 700,000 cases of malaria, pneumonia, and diarrhea have been treated. By so doing,this catalytic initiative has realized approximately a 4% annual reduction rate of under-five mortality rates in the catchment areas.

Malaria pneumonia and Diarrhea are the main killers of children globally, accounting for 40% of all deaths among children under 5 years of age. In certain countries in sub-Saharan Africa, the relative importance of these killers is higher still. In Mali and Niger for example, malaria, pneumonia and diarrhea cause 60% of child deaths. This is why UNICEF and (the Canadian International Development Agency)* are supporting Niger's Ministry of Health to deliver Integrated Community Case Management of Malaria, pneumonia, Diarrhea and acute malnutrition. This strategy, also known as iCCM, uses trained, supervised community health workers living in communities without access to medical facilities to deliver life-saving health services to the children who need them the most. A clear focus on effect...

Aissa Diarra said she discovered health anthropology while in medical school. A researcher at Niger’s Laboratoire d’Etude et de Recherches sur les Dynamiques Sociales et le Développement Local (LASDEL), Diarra soon found it was the best way to help improve patient care, something that had frustrated her on the front lines.
