AFD and the State of Côte d'Ivoire today signed an allocation agreement for the Health Systems Strengthening Program in the context of France’s Debt Reduction-Development Contract (C2D). This program will improve the health of populations and reduce maternal, neonatal and child mortality.
The program aims to:
- Improve access to quality health services for the population of Côte d’Ivoire;
- Achieve the common objective of reducing maternal and child mortality and malnutrition;
- Improve the supply chain for pharmaceuticals and strategic inputs, as well as the performances of the pharmaceutical system.
It is financed with resources from the Debt Reduction-Development Contract(in French), for a total amount of FCFA 44.6bn (approximately EUR 68m).
The agreement was signed by Daniel Kablan Duncan, Head of the Côte d’Ivoire Government, and Rémy Rioux, Chief Executive Officer of AFD, during his first official visit to Côte d'Ivoire since he took office on 2 June 2016.
