Maternal infant healthcare represents one key priority within the framework of fostering services of quality able to reduce the number of women, newly born infants and children suffering from preventable and treatable diseases during pregnancy or birth.
Community healthcare, core hygiene, the study of neglected tropical diseases, technical training and the construction and rehabilitation of infrastructures are the core structural pillars to the work that VIDA engages in. Hence, we have been undertaking projects in Guinea Bissau where we began with Community Health Workers with the community healthcare projects currently ongoing facilitating popular access to the healthcare system.
VIDA, in partnership with UNICEF, also works in conjunction with the Ministry of Health on the design and implementation of the European Union Program PIMI – the Integrated Program for the Reduction of Maternal and Infant Mortality.
