The overall objective of the project was to improve the health situation in the village of M’Batto-Bouaké which is located 35 km to the east of Abidjan, on the shore of Potou Lagoon in southern Ivory Coast. The existing infrastructures in the Centre de Rencontres et d’Education Rurale Ilomba were optimized to expand the capacity, both in terms of quantity as well as quality, of healthcare attention given out by the dispensary of that center. The dispensary was equipped so that illnesses which previously had to be referred to public health centers in the city for lack of means could be diagnosed and treated. Thanks to this undertaking, the dispensary offers service to a population of 12,000 people distributed in 13 villages in a radius of 10 kilometers. It functions six days a week attending 8,100 consultations annually at affordable prices as well as providing free preventative medicine campaigns.
