The project

Build and equip a health center in the village of Tangafla, C ôte d'Ivoire
Why ?

Household incomes are unpredictable putting the people in a precarious financial situation since they depend mostly on agricultural activities. However, in this rural region farming is difficult because the fields are regularly destroyed by roaming domestic animals (cattle, sheep etc), and because the rains are variable from one year to the next with a total lack of water during the dry season. There are two government clinics, in Séguétiélé and in Kombolokoro, but they are minimally equipped and run by a government nurse without supervision of a doctor. Neither has a laboratory. Many patients are obliged to travel to Korhogo or to the Baptist Clinic in Torogokaha (42 km) by motorcycle or mini-bus in order to receive the care they need. Childbirth takes place at home without proper supervision.

  • rapid attention in case of emergency, assisted deliveries by qualified personnel, and assured care for chronic conditions as well as the availability of health teaching to promote good health.

  • to save time and money on transportation.

  • an improvement in the state of health of the population, a lower rate of mortality and an improvement in the economic situation of the population.
