Description : The Zéaglo health centre benefits from a support in terms of vaccination, hygiene and asepsis and receives a monthly medicine and edible medicine supplies.
The ICRC built an incinerator and a placenta pit. The waste of the health centre that can present a danger for health are then destroyed in an appropriate manner by the person responsible for hygiene in the health centre.
The incinerator is used approximately once a week according to the volume of waste to destroy. The ashes are placed in a special concrete pit next to the placenta pit.
The Abidjan delegation supports the four health centres of Zéaglo, Doké, Sahibi, and Péhé, as well as the two general hospitals of Toulepleu and Blolequin that are all situated in the same region of West Côte d’Ivoire, next to the border with Liberia.
