    'Our Africa by Merck Foundation' is a pan-African television program conceptualized, produced, directed and co-hosted by Senator Dr. Rasha Kelej, CEO of the Merck Foundation, featuring African fashion designers, singers and leading experts from various domains with the goal of raising awareness and creating cultural change in Africa. The show is co-hosted by Brian Mulondo from Uganda.

    Senator Dr. Rasha Kelej, Executive Director of the Merck Foundation said: “The response to the television program 'Our Africa of the Merck Foundation' has been very positive and overwhelming. I am very happy that the TV show was informative and entertaining at the same time. Now, we bring you the ninth episode that focuses on the theme of 'Stop gender-based violence'. Gender-based violence is the most pervasive but least visible human rights violation in the world. Gender-based violence affects 1 in 3 women throughout their lives, worldwide.

    “We address this sensitive topic through our 'Fashion and Art with a Purpose' community. I really admire art and fashion in Africa and I strongly believe that fashion and art should have a purpose beyond entertainment and looking good. They can help to be the voice of the voiceless and raise awareness in our communities. Through our program we want to reach out to youth and other members of urban and rural communities across the continent to address and raise awareness of a wide range of pressing health and social issues that are relevant to Africa, such as; Stop gender-based violence, break the stigma of infertility, end child marriage, support girls' education, end female genital mutilation (FGM), promote a healthy lifestyle, prevent and control diabetes and coronavirus health awareness and more,” added Dr. Rasha Kelej.

    The show airs on: The show airs on the following TV channels:

    - Every Saturday at 5:30 pm (EAT) on KTN, Kenya; re-run Wednesday at 6:30am (EAT) - Every Sunday at 6:30pm (EAT) on NTV Uganda; broadcast Thursday at 4:00 pm (EAT) - Every Sunday at 2 pm on (GMT) GH One TV, Ghana; rerun Monday at 1:30 pm (GMT)

    While gender-based violence (GBV) is not a problem unique to Africa, there is no doubt that the magnitude of the problem persists more severely on the continent than in other parts of the world. The World Health Organization (WHO) reports that in 2013, 35% of women worldwide had experienced physical or sexual violence in their lifetime. By contrast, 45.6% of women over the age of 15 in Africa have experienced the same.

    This high incidence of gender-based violence in Africa can be correlated with low levels of education, exposure to violence elsewhere, patriarchal systems, attitudes that accept violence and gender inequality, and low access to information.

    In societies where justice is rarely achieved, awareness of women's rights is limited, and exposure to violence is constant, the task of reducing GBV remains paramount.

    The ninth episode of "Our Africa by Merck Foundation" features GHONE TV TV host and style coach Nancy, who shared tips on how to use fashion to build confidence in women. The episode also featured talented young designers Gaone Mangogola from Botswana and Stephany – Lee Schmidt from Namibia, who shared their designs displaying STOP GBV messages.

    Senator Dr. Rasha further emphasized: “We have also launched awards for media, fashion designers, filmmakers, musicians/singers, and potential new talents in these fields from African countries to address the sensitive issue of stopping gender-based violence, and also others. Topics such as Breaking the Stigma of Infertility, Supporting Girls' Education, Empowering Women, Ending Child Marriage and/or Ending Female Genital Mutilation. We are organizing these pageants in association with my dear sisters, the African First Ladies. I am excited and eager to receive applications at submit@merck-foundation.com.”

    “I am very excited to bring you all the upcoming episodes of the television show 'OUR AFRICA by Merck Foundation.' So stay tuned and get ready to get informed, stay healthy and be entertained!” concluded Senator Dr. Rasha Kelej.

    Dow Expands Flexible Packaging Recycling Effort Across Africa

    Following a successful pilot phase in Nigeria, Dow expands its flexible packaging recycling initiative, Project REFLEX, to new markets in Africa (www.Dow.com); Post-consumer recycled (PCR) produced during the pilot phase is being tested by a large brand owner for use in some of their packaging applications; Dow aims to divert 10,000 metric tons (MT) of flexible packaging waste by 2025 through Project REFLEX, which supports Dow's global commitment to help promote a circular economy for plastics and reduce plastic waste.

    Dow (www.Dow.com/en) (NYSE: DOW) has announced the expansion of its Project REFLEX initiative in Egypt and Guinea, following a successful pilot phase in Nigeria. Working together with local partners, the initiative aims to increase flexible packaging recycling in Africa to establish a market for recycled content to help tackle the waste problem while providing job opportunities for local communities.

    Launched in 2020 (https://dow.inc/3ObOLRL), the project specifically targets flexible packaging, such as plastic water bags, that ensure local communities have access to clean water, to show that it can be collect and recycle for use. in new quality packaging applications.

    Post-consumer recycling (PCR) that was created in the pilot phase is currently being tested by a major brand owner for use in some of their non-food packaging applications. If successful, it will be a living example of a closed-loop system for plastics in Africa and further demonstrate the commercial viability of PCR materials from flexible packaging waste.

    Through Project REFLEX, Dow aims to divert 10,000 metric tons (MT) of flexible packaging waste by 2025 that would otherwise end up in landfills or the environment, while creating direct employment opportunities for more 50,000 waste pickers in Nigeria, Egypt and Guinea through innovative waste management company, Wecyclers. To date, the Project has diverted a total of 520 MT of flexible packaging waste into mechanical recycling streams and new applications.

    Sami Mainich, Dow North & West Africa Regional Director, commented: “At Dow, we know that a critical part of solving the plastic waste crisis is enabling a closed-loop system for waste. Using our materials science expertise and technology capabilities, we believe we are best positioned to help accelerate the pace of change in developing countries like Africa by supporting innovative local companies to scale solutions that benefit the environment and local communities. The Project REFLEX initiative is a great example of how this can take shape and grow sustainably, especially when it comes to flexible packaging applications.”

    Collaboration is key: expansion of the REFLEX Project to new markets in Africa

    Expansion into Egypt began in December 2021 when Dow began an 18-month partnership with the international non-governmental organization WasteAid (WasteAid.org), which shares waste management and recycling skills in low- and middle-income countries, to promote the plastic. waste recovery and recycling in Aswan. The REFLEX Project expansion strategy will see similar partnerships with public, private and community actors in Egypt and Guinea to increase the collection and valorization of flexible plastic.

    Olawale Adebiyi, CEO of Wecyclers, said: “By working together with major sponsors like Dow to scale sustainable solutions to address flexible packaging waste in Africa, we can help ensure this material retains its value. It has been gratifying and inspiring to see the positive impact of these combined efforts on local business communities in Nigeria through the pilot phase of Project REFLEX. We look forward to expanding our role in Egypt and Guinea, helping to raise awareness of the socio-economic benefits of sustainable waste management.”

    Socio-economic focus: help stop waste and support local communities

    The project has a strong socio-economic focus, so in addition to providing expertise, funding and technology to drive efforts to divert plastic waste from the environment, Dow and Wecyclers want to ensure that local communities in Africa are aware of the value of plastic waste. these materials. and the income opportunities they can provide through collection, sorting and recycling. For example, the organizations held an event in March in partnership with a social impact organization that brought together community members and local organizations to learn more about recycling plastics and actively participate in a cleanup exercise on Lagos Island, Lagos, which has started a grassroots campaign to ensure that more people collect and bring in their plastic water bags.

    Adwoa Coleman, Dow Africa Packaging and Specialty Plastics Sustainability and Advocacy Manager, said: “The reason we are so proud of Project REFLEX in Africa is that it addresses the full life cycle of flexible plastic packaging, from production to use. Our hope is that the education, materials and support to local communities and businesses in Nigeria, Egypt and Guinea, and potentially in other African markets, received through the program will result in a long-term sustainable collection of flexible packaging. At Dow, we see a thriving circular economy in the region if you include the people who are already doing this hard work on the ground to enable it, and that is exactly what we are trying to do through Project REFLEX in Africa.”

    By collaborating with people and organizations that are already supporting recycling and waste management infrastructure, the REFLEX Project is driving and scaling local sustainable solutions for Nigeria, Egypt and Guinea. This project is aligned with Dow's STOP THE WASTE (https://dow.inc/39dI9U9) global sustainability goal, which will enable the collection, reuse or recycling of one million metric tons of plastic worldwide by 2030.

    Funding for Project REFLEX comes from the Dow Business Impact Fund (https://dow.inc/3HcqJ6F), a competitive grant program that allocates corporate contributions to shared value projects to help address social issues through technology and the company's experience.

    NTBLCP reiterates TB test, treatment free in Nigeria

    Dr Chukwuma Anyaike, the Director and National Coordinator, National Tuberculosis, Buruli Ulcer,
    and Leprosy Control Programme (NTBLCP), has reiterated that Tuberculosis (TB) test and treatment are free in Nigeria.

    He made the emphasis during an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria on Tuesday in Abuja.

    He said “anyone coughing for two weeks or more should call 3340 for free TB test.”

    Tuberculosis is caused by bacteria that spreads from person to person through microscopic droplets released into the air.

    This can happen when someone with active form of tuberculosis coughs, speaks, sneezes, spits, laughs or sings. Although
    tuberculosis is contagious, it’s not easy to catch.

    Anyaike, therefore, advised anyone coughing up blood or mucus, chest pain, or pain while breathing, unintentional
    weight loss, night sweat and chills, among others, not to hesitate to call the number — 3340. 

    He called on Nigerians to spread the word and save lives to end TB in the country, cautioning that persons with active TB
    disease in their lungs could spread it through the air.

    He explained that “what I mean by active is that the TB germs are multiplying and spreading in the body. If you’re
    in close contact with someone who has it, you can be infected.

    “That’s why doctors advise those who have active TB disease to stay home and away from other people as much as
    possible until they’re no longer infectious.

    “If you have TB germs in your body but they haven’t become active, you have what doctors call `latent TB.’
    You can’t spread the disease to others, but your doctor may still recommend that you take medications to
    keep the germs from becoming active.”

    The NTBLCP national coordinator also said that the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), through
    the STOP TB Partnership, donated new tools for diagnosis and treatment of TB  in the country.

    The tools, he added, were recent innovations to support the country in closing the gap in missing tuberculosis
    and drug-resistant cases and help the country in the treatment of Latent TB infection.

    He said “Nigeria is one of the six countries selected to benefit from the ‘introducing New Tools Project (iNTP)’,
    a global initiative to increase access to new, high-quality diagnostics and treatment for tuberculosis in high
    TB burden countries.”

    He added that the 3.3-million-dollar iNTP tools package for Nigeria include 38 WHO-recommended rapid
    molecular Truenat diagnostic systems adapted for tropical environments and used in lower-level health facilities.

    Others were 10 high-tech Ultraportable digital X-ray systems with Computer-Aided Detection software (CAD)
    Intelligence (AI) for TB screening and TB preventive medicines to protect and prevent the progression of
    the disease in 21,000 adults and children.

    Anyaike said the new tools would be distributed to 18 states in the country, including Lagos, Ogun, Oyo, Osun, Kano,
    Kaduna and Katsina.

    Other states are: Bauchi, Nasarawa, Plateau, Benue, Taraba, Anambra, Imo, Delta, Akwa Ibom, Cross River and Rivers.

    Merck Foundation is continuing its efforts of raising awareness against sensitive issues such as FGM through Our African community of Art and Fashion with Purpose

    BUJUMBURA, Burundi, February 6, 2022/APO Group/ --

    Merck Foundation (Merck-Foundation.com), the philanthropic arm of Merck KGaA Germany marks the International Day of Zero Tolerance for Female Genital Mutilation 2022 as a part of the Merck Foundation “More Than a Mother” and “Educating Linda” program. 

    Senator, Dr. Rasha Kelej, CEO of Merck Foundation and President of Merck Foundation “More Than a Mother” campaign emphasized on the observance of this important day, “Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) is a deep-rooted social norm for girls and women in many cultures in Africa, Middle East, Asia and Latin America, it denies them their dignity, endangers their health and causes needless pain and suffering and many serious complications that they are forced to live with the rest of their lives such as; Infertility, infections, stillborn babies and in some cases, can also lead to death”.

    The UN estimates that 200 million women and girls around the world have undergone FGM, with 80% of cases occurring in Africa alone. Most of the girls who have undergone this practice are below 15 years of age.

    “Taking into account this dire situation, I strongly believe that raising awareness, advocacy building, and girl education are the keys to eradicating this practice. It is all about improving access to information, health and change of mindset to have zero tolerance to FGM. FGM has no health benefit, in fact, it only harms women and girls physically and psychologically”, Senator, Rasha Kelej emphasized.

    According to the UN data, the world over 1 in 4 women have undergone female genital mutilation, this is close to 52 million women world over. Merck Foundation supports the UN’s cause of putting an end to the practice of FGM by 2030.

    “I truly believe that Education is Power and educating girls is empowering them to make their own decisions in the future when they become strong women. It will enable them to access to information, health and economic opportunities, and stand up for their rights for themselves and their families thus, helping them to save their girls and preventing issues like Female Genital Mutilation even if it is too late for them.

    This International Day of Zero Tolerance for Female Genital Mutilation we, at Merck Foundation would like to encourage everyone to work closely together to eliminate Female Genital Mutilation from our communities. We have to work together to create a culture shift to stop this meaningless practice”, emphasized Senator, Dr. Rasha Kelej.

    Merck Foundation aims to raise awareness about violence against females, empower girls and women through education to bring in a culture shift through media, art, and fashion.

    “Merck Foundation is continuing its efforts of raising awareness against sensitive issues such as FGM through Our African community of Art and Fashion with Purpose. We will soon be launching ‘Our Africa’, a television program that is set to be the voice of the voiceless and break the silence about many social and health issues in Africa and create a culture shift together. I strongly believe that fashion and art should have a purpose beyond entertainment. They can contribute to sensitizing our communities about different social and health issues such as ending FGM, ending child marriage, stopping GBV, breaking Infertility stigma, supporting girl education, and more”, added Senator, Dr. Rasha Kelej, CEO of Merck Foundation.

    As a part of the Merck Foundation Educating Linda program, Merck Foundation helps young girls who are unprivileged but brilliant to continue their education. The spirit of the project is to provide an opportunity for such girls to pursue their dreams and reach their potential through access to education.

    Merck Foundation has also introduced and launched interesting storybooks for children to teach them the values of respecting women and underline the importance of girls’ education.
