A delegation made up of the Supervisor and Coordinator of the Tékane Health Center Project, as well as officials from the Tékane Health Association (AST) and the Association Against Tuberculosis and Endemic Diseases (ACTUME), was received in audience November 16, 2021 by His Excellency Dr Sidi Ould ZAHAF Minister of Health, after the field visit and meetings with local and regional authorities, in particular with the Wali and the Regional Director of Health of Trarza, as well as the Hakem of Tékane.

The purpose of the meeting focused mainly on the progress of the Tékane Health Center Project. This project is carried out within the framework of a partnership between ACTUME and AST with the invaluable support of the services of the Ministry of Health. Thus, the size of the health center has been revised upwards to bring it into line with the new standards in force by the Ministry.

The construction site of the Tékane health center is proceeding well, despite the vagaries of the pandemic. The roof casting work is scheduled for the month of December 2021.

The delegation wished to see the partnership with the Ministry continued and strengthened. She informed His Excellency the Minister of the arrival of a donation of 15 pallets including 120,000 masks worth 105,000 euros, intended to support the efforts of his department in the fight against COVID 19 and to raise awareness for greater vigilance.

The Minister welcomed the solutions provided by the two associations and assured the delegation of the continued support of his department and that all the necessary arrangements will be made for the equipment of the Tékane health center according to the health map of the country.
