MISELANEOUS HEALTH RELATED PROJECTS

Burkina Faso: in activity
Niger: Project completed in 2014

The project in collaboration with HPI motivated husbands to let their wives attend consultations and encouraged women who were not regulars to come more often.

A number of health projects were carried out in Niger, including the construction of a health center in Bossey Bangou in partnership with the Rotary Club of Dartmouth, Nova Scotia. In addition, solar energy has helped to improve working conditions in the different rural health services locations in both Niger and Burkina Faso especially during the nights when emergency work was previously done with flashlights. In Burkina Faso, a partnership was established with ESF (Électriciens Sans-Frontières of Rhone-Alpes), a French NGO for solar electrification.

SEMAFO Foundation, in collaboration with Health Partners Canada (HPI), has distributed mother-child kits containing drugs and nutritional supplements and delivery materials to women who regularly attend health centers and maternity for their consultations (ANC , postnatal and infant). These SEMAFO Foundation donations offer strong support against malnourishment, in addition to also improving mother-children health.
