🚨 [Ebola Emergency] The Ebola Treatment Center in N'Zérékoré (Guinea 🇬🇳) is currently under construction.
This extension will make it possible to accommodate around ten additional rooms to treat the new suspected cases detected in the region.

Following the first reports of Ebola cases on February 14, ALIMA has been supporting the Ministry of Health and the National Health Security Agency (ANSS) of Guinea in the care and treatment of patients.

Are you familiar with the Kangaroo Care method?
Papa Emile Wogbela manages the neonatal unit at the Boda hospital in the Central African Republic, supported by ALIMA.
When babies are born early, he teaches mothers about Kangaroo Care.
This method, which consists of holding a premature baby on the chest and belly with skin-to-skin contact, contributes to the health and well-being of premature babies.

[PATIENT STORY] #InsideALIMA - Central African Republic 🇨🇫

Estella's twins were born in the neonatal unit at Boda Hospital in the Central African Republic, supported by ALIMA. It was a complicated birth, which could have been fatal to her if she had not been assisted by experienced midwives. The twins received medical care, and were put on oxygen and antibiotics for 9 days.

"I am very grateful to the medical team because if they hadn't been there, I don't know what would have happened to me and my children. Thank you for saving my life and my children's lives."

"During the journey from Bangui, the capital of the Central African Republic, to the town of Boda, I experienced and understood the difficulty of accessibility. During the rainy season, it took us more than 7 hours by car to cover 120 miles. The road was in very bad shape.

But despite the difficult conditions, what impressed me most was the professionalism of the drivers who know the route by heart, and the willingness of our teams to go to Boda to provide health care for the community.

During the journey, and also during the visit, I felt the devotion of my colleagues in Boda, both medical and non-medical staff." -Cora Portais, communication officer at ALIMA, who visited CAR to report on ALIMA's activities

In Boda, ALIMA supports the main health structures with primary and maternal health care: essential activities in a country where the maternal mortality rate is one of the highest in the world.
