In Cárdenas, in the state of Tabasco, Eni Foundation intends to strengthen maternal and childcare services by supporting the ambitious Healthcare Programme launched by the Ministry of Health (Programa Sectorial de Salud 2019-2024),which aims to improve basic healthcare services at municipal level, giving priority to those without access to medical services. With this work, the Foundation is supporting vulnerable people and communities without access to healthcare services at a particularly critical time due to both the spread of the Covid-19 pandemic and the floods that hit the country in 2020.
We have two projects in Cárdenas:
- the first, a short-term project, was launched after the signing of the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between the Eni Foundation, the State of Tabasco and the Jurisdiction of Cárdenas on 5 November, and involves a series of activities to procure and provide healthcare supplies to a value of €500,000.
- the second, of a medium to long-term nature, aims to increase access to Primary Healthcare (PHC) services in the Municipality of Cárdenas, with activities at Jurisdiction, Referral Hospital, Priority Healthcare Centre and Community levels.
