The provisioning of the furniture and medical equipment necessary for the property functioning of the new Maternity building in the Guiba health area in Burkina Faso
The Ajuda'm a viure foundation, in collaboration with the Centre de Santé et de Promotion Sociale de Guiba, launch a project to improve child/maternal health care in the region of Guiba, in the province of Zoundweogo, located some 80 km to the south of the capita of Ouagadougou, in Burkina Faso.
Guiba has a Dispensary and Maternity unit, which serves a population of 9,392 people (data from the 2016 Guiba Health Plan) in the seven communities that make up the Guiba health area, within a radius of about 15 km.
The project is expected to increase the number of pregnancies monitored and deliveries taking place in an adequate healthcare setting, resulting in the enhanced detection of possible risks, and patients being routed to higher health levels, thereby improving maternal and child morbidity and mortality rates.
The indirect beneficiaries are the estimated 10,868 people making up the population of the seven communities served by the health centre, within a radius of 15 km.
