The Healthcare project in Mozambique

Since 2013, Eni Foundation has improved healthcare services and trained healthcare staff in the cities of Palma and Maputo.

Our commitment to improving women's health

This Eni Foundation project began with work to improve the Palma District central health unit. To respond to emergencies involving women in labour, we built an operating theatre at the health centre equipped with X-ray, scanning and laboratory facilities to boost the centre’s diagnostic capacities, and a maternity unit to care for pregnant women from the most remote parts of the district. We also gave the healthcare staff an off-road vehicle so they could run mobile clinics and monitor the more remote health centres. In addition to improving infrastructure, we also organised a range of training activities. During 2014, we ran a number of training courses for the medical, nursing, technical and administrative staff of the entire district. Another component of the project was a drama production entitled “The Theatre is Good For You” – an alternative approach to teaching good practice in the areas of hygiene, healthcare and diet. This was produced and coordinated with the assistance of Jacopo Fo and Bruno Patierno. 

Finally, we have launched a programme of effective treatment for precancerous or neoplastic lesions in women at 21 health centres in the city of Maputo and its province. About 630 women between the ages of 25 and 50 have been preventively screened for cervical cancer. The programme also involves supplying equipment and tools to make screening processes fully functional at seven of the health centres, as well as training 30 health workers at centres in the city of Maputo.

Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)

The UN’s Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development is an action programme with 17 goals relating to communities’ and countries’ social and economic development. Through this project, we are helping reach the goal of health and well-being for all (Goal 3).

With our initiatives we have strengthened healthcare facilities and trained staff in the city of Palma. In addition, we have gradually introduced effective treatment of pre-cancerous or neoplastic tumours for women in the city of Maputo.

Safety first

Workplace safety is a fundamental principle that we share with employees, contract workers and local communities. For that reason, we implement all necessary measures to avoid accidents, including organisational models to assess and manage risk, training programmes, skills development and the promotion of a culture of safety.

Partnership

All initiatives are carried out in collaboration with the country’s Ministry of Health (MISAU), the Capo Delgado Provincial Health Authority, the Palma District Health Centre Management and the NGO Medici con l’Africa (CUAMM).
