San Donato Milanese (Milan), 1 June 2021 – Eni Foundation has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Ministry of Health, Population and Hospital Reform of the People's Democratic Republic of Algeria to contribute to the country's policy aimed at expanding access to maternal and childcare services in the South of the country.
In particular, the Foundation will provide support to strengthen specific services in the region's hospitals by supplying medical equipment and training health personnel, as well as extending home services in remote areas of the South through the support of mobile clinics, with the aim of contributing to the reduction of diseases and maternal-infant mortality.
Through this initiative, Eni Foundation aims to contribute to the Algerian health system's commitment to providing an effective health offering, particularly in the peripheral areas of the country.
Eni has been present in Algeria since 1981 and represents the country's main international energy company. Eni Foundation was established at the end of 2006 to promote and implement social and humanitarian solidarity initiatives in Italy and abroad in the assistance, health, education, culture and the environment sectors, addressing in particular most vulnerable population groups, especially children.
