ALIMA IN RCA
ALIMA has been present in CAR since 2013. Its main activities focus on screening and medical and nutritional care for children, reproductive health, primary and secondary health care and response to epidemics. Five projects are currently being implemented, including 4 early recovery projects for the health system in the health districts of Bimbo, Boda and Haut-Mbomou in Zémio and Obo financed by the Bêkou Fund, an RRM project mainly in the Nana-Gribizi prefecture funded by ECHO since April 2018 including an operationalization component of the Mbrès health area.
In December 2013, ALIMA provided medical support in 3 IDP sites on the outskirts of Bangui then set up a free primary health care package in 5 CDS of the DS of Bimbo and Bangui. The care offer was extended to 13 CDS in Bimbo in 2018. The project aims to strengthen the capacities of the Health District with a view to complete autonomy.
ALIMA’s second intervention began in the DS of Boda in June 2014, a city that was facing violent community clashes. ALIMA allowed the reopening of the hospital of Boda and the CDS of Boboua (DS of Mbaïki). Today, the project covers the hospital and 9 FOSA to ensure the empowerment as well as the resilience of the local health system and the community.
Since April 2018, ALIMA has been involved in the DS of Kémo and Nana-Gribizi as part of the RRM. The project includes humanitarian monitoring and analysis of needs after a shock and has made it possible to carry out 8 missions to assess the needs of displaced populations in order to meet their needs. In addition, ALIMA has begun to support the Mbrès hospital, in particular the Maternity and Pediatric services, the stabilization of trauma cases and other emergencies. Since April 2019, the action at the Nana-Gribizi level has two components: an RRM response strategy to humanitarian shocks and in the event of an epidemic and a second component in support of the FOSA of AS Mbrès.
