Côte d’Ivoire’s government entrusted Promed International to develop a turnkey project aimed at designing, building and equipping 102 new clinics and reconstruct 247 existing primary and secondary care clinics across the country, known as ESPC – First Contact Sanitary Establishments.
The project was split into two equal stages, with the second stage optional. All ESPC’s were designed as self-sufficient health centers, with inpatient and outpatient services for general community medicine and maternity care.
The 102 new clinics comprise three different models, based upon the size of the population they will serve. Each new unit also includes on-site accommodations for the medical staff and is equipped with basic medical equipment.
The 247 rehabilitated clinics are of various sizes and in various states of repair.
