Eni and the International Rescue Committee inaugurate three renovated health centres in the region of Sud-Comoé

The project includes the facilities’ rehabilitation and equipment, along with a dedicated health training program, to the benefit of over 33,000 people with a focus on maternal, newborn and child care.

Ayenouan (Côte d'Ivoire), 3 July 2024 – Eni, in partnership with the International Rescue Committee (IRC), inaugurates today the first batch of renovated health centres in Sud-Comoé region, as part of a major project to strengthen the health system in the area and to support the country’s Health National Development Plan 2021-2025.


The rehabilitation works targeted 3 health centres in Ayenouan, Djiminikoffikro and Ono-Salci, upgrading the existing infrastructures to provide better access to hygiene and electricity, as well as the proper management of medical wastes. The interventions also included the supply of ambulances and equipment to prevent and treat complications, particularly related to women and children (e.g. medical aspirators for children and adults, mobile cradles, etc.), and the provision of training programs for health personnel and community health organizations.


Eni’s and IRC’s project, designed together with the Ministry of Health, Public Hygiene and Universal Health Coverage, involves 6 health centers in the districts of Grand Bassam, Aboisso, and Adiaké, and one maternal and infant protection center in Grand Bassam. Works will be concluded in the remaining health centres by 2025. The project fits with both partners’ commitment to strengthen the country’s healthcare system, improving the efficiency and performances of medical facilities in rural areas; the renovated centres will serve around 60% of the population living in the area.


Eni operates in Côte d’Ivoire since 2015 with a wide range of projects from hydrocarbons production to new energies valorization to integrate the country into the biofuel value chain, as well as initiatives to improve access to health and education, in line with its commitment to a Just Transition.
