The Healthcare project in Mozambique

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

Our results

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. The final 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.

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 aimed to help meet the goal of ensuring the health and wellbeing of the population (Goal 3).

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 of these initiatives were carried out in partnership with the Ministry of Health (MISAU), the Capo Delgado Provincial Health Authority, the Palma District Health Centre Management and the NGO Medici con l’Africa (CUAMM).
