Organization Description:
Cause Première is an NGO created since 1995 in Casamance south of Senegal in order to help women and girls victims of underground mines and poverty.
"Cause Première" helps them by training, healthcare, social mobilization, Education women impowerment, etc.
Since 2007, “Cause première” held offices in Guinea, Ivory Coast, Mauritania, Mali and plan to have representation in Burkina Faso very soon.
In January 2010, “ Cause Première” has been officially recognized in France
TB is getting to be forgetting in Senegal and some in some francophone West African countries. Since the local government notices that over 35% of persons living with HIV died from TB, they realised that TB has not gone.
Then "Cause Première" is sure that one organization even a government couldn't fight alone TB and eradicated it. We can't accept that TB continues to kill people while the treatment is totally free and efficient medicaments exist.
And, according to the Programme 'Three By One" of Unites-Nations and the Millennium development Goal, we defend the idea that it's a duty of all organizations, persons and institutions to help United-Nations and it's branch of WHO to fight vigorously TB since it can be cured.
NOw Cause Première has a Special Consultative Status with EOCOSC and also partner with UNDOC
