Chad: Insights for health security strengthening (Oct 2022)

TDDA's final Chad newsletter reflects on how momentum can be maintained


After almost four years of support from the TDDA programme, Chad is on a path to building stronger health security systems. We are proud to have been an ally and facilitator in this progress that will help keep communities safer from infectious diseases and other health risks. As we depart, TDDA offers some insights into what we see as the most crucial next steps to continue strengthening health security on behalf of all Chadians. They include:

  • How we hope Chad can build on the recent state order, creating a National One Health Platform

  • What the COVID-19 pandemic taught us about border health surveillance

  • How formalizing civil society’s role in health security will help ensure no-one is left behind

To discuss how our interventions might be supported by others and scaled up in future, on 23 September 2022 we convened a wide range of government stakeholder, international partners and leaders of civil society organizations (CSOs). The 56 participants included the Ministers of Health and National Solidarity and its counterpart Ministry for Livestock and Animal Production, FCDO Chad representatives, Prime Ministerial advisers, and the General and Technical Directors of relevant sectoral ministries.


The TDDA programme closes in November 2022.
