For over 25 years, IECD has been supporting healthcare structures as one of its primary axes of intervention in Africa and the Near East. In these regions, infant mortality rates remain high, a result of inadequate care for patients in failing healthcare facilities.
IECD works to improve the quality of hospital care and support of the most vulnerable patients, prioritising mothers and their children.
- strengthening health care facilities technically, operationally and financially
- the impetus of a sustainable momentum for improving care practices;
- awareness-raising among the population, to promote good health practices.
Today, IECD conducts two flagship programmes: Support to Healthcare Structures (PASS) in Congo-Brazzaville and the improvement of support for sickle-cell disease. Furthermore, it brings its support to several structures to improve access to healthcare in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, in Madagascar and in Syria.
