The purpose of the project is to help to reduce maternal, infant and child mortality by implementing an effective immunization program. This program is based on strengthening the cold chain thanks to solar-powered equipment. Project activities include: (1) equipping health centres with solar refrigerators to allow the preservation and distribution of vaccines and drugs; (2) training workers to install and maintain solar-powered equipment and to manage vaccines and biomedical waste; (3) equipping health centres with essential drugs and materials to provide emergency neonatal and obstetric care; and (4) training service providers in childhood diseases and emergency care. This project aims to improve the health status of women and children living in the targeted regions.
