To this end, the population is now committed to building a health post to reduce the risks to which the population in general, and women in particular, are exposed. This will involve constructing two buildings to house the health staff who will be assigned to the village.
In addition, the premises that used to be used to care for the population will be enlarged with
the construction of two hospital wards and a pharmacy. This project aims to
facilitate access to primary healthcare for the population, with the availability of personnel
