The project aims at reducing the number of children under five years of age who are sick or die from a preventable or easily treatable disease through the following specific objectives:

  • Increase the number of children who are screened and treated for the most common diseases (malaria, diarrhea, respiratory infections, malnutrition, etc.)
  • Increase the number of households using preventive measures (mosquito nets, latrines, hand washing, etc.)
  • Reduce the number of complications related to pregnancy and maternity by increasing and improving pre- and post-natal care, assisted deliveries, and family planning

  • Conduct mortality and behaviour surveys, select communities, report results and involve local leaders
  • Organize training workshops to improve knowledge of families and induce changes in behavior
  • Promote the emergence of representative and recognized village groups and support them in the implementation of concrete prevention actions (hand washing, latrine construction, diffusion of insecticide-treated nets, etc.).
