For ACTUME, this award rewards our actions in Mauritania: health caravans and the Community pharmacy. Thank you very much to all of our volunteers.

The health caravans of the Association Against Tuberculosis and Endemic Diseases (ACTUME) were born from the observation of a glaring lack of care from which the populations of the municipality of TĂ©kane in Mauritania suffer. They made it possible to treat 17,000 patients. In addition, the problem of access to medicines arose after the caravans because of the distance from the points of sale but also of their cost. It was therefore necessary to establish a community pharmacy and solidarity within the municipality.
