Noma, a forgotten disease of extreme poverty

 

Noma, a forgotten disease unknown to the international community, kills about 140,000 children every year, all between the ages of 2 and 6. This gangrene, which devours the faces of children living in extreme poverty, is devastating the poorest populations in South America, Southeast Asia and Africa.

It is in fact in conditions of extreme poverty, where hygiene, primary health care and food security are lacking, that the disease develops. However, the administration of a simple antibiotic treatment when the first symptoms of the disease appear (appearance of small lesions inside the mouth, oedema of the face, foul breath, lymph nodes…) would save the sick child, and would be enough to prevent the vast majority of childhood deaths related to Noma.

Actions in favour of the fight against Noma

To date, a number of actions have already been implemented to eradicate Noma disease. Noma Fund association, created by former football stars Roger Milla and Joseph-Antoine Bell, and supported by internationally renowned star Samuel Eto’o, has launched an appeal to the heads of state of the G20 and UN member states to bring Noma disease to their attention, as well as the action plan “Acting against Noma 2021-2030”.

This plan, which aims to raise awareness among the populations most likely to be affected by Noma, to prevent the disease, and which provides for the construction of a referral hospital and care centres, requires the mobilization of the entire international community to eradicate the disease in South America, South-East Asia and Africa.

These are the initiatives that Noma-petition.org wishes to promote to as many people as possible.
