Promotion of maternal and child health in Mushasha PDF Print E-mail

After having supported other organisations’ projects, Museke is back in Burundi and starts from a health centre, one of the numerous small health realities that daily offer primary health care to hundreds of patients. Our intervention was requested by the HC of Mushasha, owned by the Archdiocese of Gitega: the objective is to improve the health care services supplied to the local community, particularly those aimed at women and children, for a progressive improvement of maternal and child health.

By direct dialogue with our local partner arose the priorities to deal with; thanks to the collaboration with our Italian partner we’ve found the answers, resulting in the following actions:

• Training HC paramedical staff in maternal and child health

• Hiring a doctor to support the existing staff

• Renovating and equipping the Health Centre

• Carrying out an awareness campaign of the local community on issues related to maternal and child health

Project title: Promotion of maternal and child health of the target population of the Health Centre of Mushasha

Period: 2013 - 2016

Partners: Fondazione Museke (leader), Medicus Mundi Italia, ODAG (Organisation for the Development of the Archdiocese de Gitega)
