And the needs are important

"We are already working in this direction, allowing to the most disavantaged to have free care; especially in terms of maternal and child health. But there is still left to be done," said the head doctor of the Campo dispensary Dr Edzamba Michel.
The dispensary is cruelly lacking in everything, equipment, medical material, medical furniture. These difficulties make the work of health professionals difficult, and limit their ability to diagnose diseases such as trypanosomiasis (sleeping sickness), tuberculosis, malaria, HIV and hepatitis. Diseases witch are still very active in the locality.
Our wish is to give the dispensary as a priority, effective means to improve the medical care of these populations.
Due to the lack of equipments in the dispensary and of medical follow-up, in addition to the remoteness areas in where live some populations, is far from the dispensary site, wich is the factor of medical desert of women.
Indeed, most of women do not go to the doctor anymore, neither for an obstetrical or prenatal follow-up, nor for a delivery. They prefer resorting to dubious and archaic care practices that came put the life of the mother and child in danger.
Births go undeclared, many children are not registre and grow up without identity.
Abortions are practiced clandestinely without any medical follow-up, which is not without consequences.
The maternity clinic has not been functional for several years.
