Free treatment campaign for patients organized by FEDEC in partnership with the organization ASCOVIME


Improving the access of indigenous populations to health care is the main objective of the health component of the Plan for Vulnerable Indigenous Peoples (PPAV). To achieve this objective, FEDEC collaborates with health institutions and organizes advanced strategy missions in the project areas. It is in this context that the Foundation, in partnership with the association ASCOVIME, organized a free treatment campaign for patients in Bipindi.

The campaign was held on July 22, 2021 at the Bipindi District Medical Center with the main objective of providing free health treatment to the populations around the Bipindi area.

During this campaign, nearly 600 people received treatment, i.e. 120 Bakola / Bagyeli and nearly 480 Bantus. 15 pregnant women received kits (baby clothes, body cleansing milk, soap, shampoo, shower gel, etc). A total of 25 people underwent surgery for hernias, cysts and a tumor in their leg. 220 people suffering from eye problems were treated, of which around 100 benefited from medical glasses. 268 other people suffering from various diseases such as toothaches, malaria, headaches, stomach pain, body pain, back pain, diarrhea, skin problems etc. were all treated.
