Guinea-Bissau. New healthcare project for children in Bafata

Guinea-Bissau

Years of political instability and economic stagnation have had a serious impact on its crumbling health system.

In the central region of Bafatá, we work to reduce childhood mortality by managing the regional hospital’s neonatal and paediatric wards, and running a nutrition programme for children under 15 years of age.

Our teams also support several health centres in rural areas and train community health workers to diagnose and treat diarrhoea, malaria and acute respiratory infections.

We also work in the main paediatric hospital in the country, in the capital of Bissau, managing the intensive care unit (PICU) around the clock.
