Improving healthcare facilities in Côte d'Ivoire

ivory coast health facility

In Côte d'Ivoire, where we have started the production of Baleine, the first project in Africa with zero net emission development activities (scope 1 and 2), we are carrying out a wide-ranging programme to strengthen the local healthcare system, improve access to healthcare services for the population and promote the community well-being. At Eni Côte d'Ivoire, we have signed cooperation agreements with two NGOs, one Italian and one international, for the implementation of community healthcare projects in the country, affirming our company's commitment to protecting the population’s health through specific programmes to strengthen local healthcare systems and infrastructure.


An initial project aims to improve healthcare services for the most vulnerable groups such as pregnant women, babies and children in underserved areas of the country. More specifically, it provides support to local healthcare facilities,coordinated by religious organizations, for staff training and service management. A second initiative involves seven health centres located in the South Comoé region.

Project actions and objectives

Access to quality healthcare services for the population 

The aim of the project, in collaboration with the NGO CUAMM Doctors with Africa, is to support 65 healthcare facilities run by religious organizations (FBO, Faith-Based Organizations), coordinated by the Union de Religieux/euse qui travaillent dans la Santé et le Social en Côte d'Ivoire (U. R.S.C.I.). The programme includes training medical staff, supporting in the reorganization of procurement and management processes, the procurement of medicines and structural interventions in thirteen selected healthcare facilities. The project also consists of a major training programme in medical subjects, to improve the organization and management of healthcare services and emergency response. Infrastructure improvements have already been carried out in two health centres, and they are in progress in three others. Among the facilities that will be made available to the population, a new maternity ward is under construction in the hospital of Abobo, a volatile neighbourhood in the capital Abidjan.

Powering the local health system in the South Comoé region

The project, in collaboration with the NGO International Rescue Committee (IRC), involves integrated interventions in 7 healthcare facilities in the South Comoé region, focusing on the rehabilitation of the infrastructure, access to drinking water, the provision of medical equipment and ambulances, vaccination campaigns, healthcare personnel training, strengthening monitoring and management services, and community awareness. In 2024, 3 healthcare facilities were upgraded in the communities of Djiminikoffikro, Ayenouan and Ono Salci. The works also include the improvement of the water sanitation infrastructure (WASH - Water Sanitation Hygiene) and patient rooms. Initiatives were also run to train medical personnel, with a particular emphasis on maternity and neonatal care.
