The program targets women of child-bearing age, pregnant women, and newborns in both departments so that they have access to quality health care. In order to strengthen geographic and cultural accessibility, the program plans to mobilize community leaders (matrons, community health workers, etc.) to get them to inform and raise the awareness of the populations. At the health centres (5 in Nippes, 4 in North-West), access to care will be improved by paying and training providers, rehabilitating buildings, and providing essential medicines and inputs. The health departments’ core teams will also be supported in their supervisory roles. Lastly, the project’s advocacy component will be strengthened through a study on the coexistence of traditional and modern models of care for pregnant women; and through participation in the discussions on health policy and on the required increase in the health care budget.
