HEALTH

The health sector is traditionally very important for the Belgian Development Cooperation. Healthy people are more likely to participate in the economy and therefore contribute to the development of their country.

WHAT WE DO

Developing an efficient and sustainable health system which ensures quality health care for all.

Access to primary health care for the poorest

We improve the quality of care in the health centres and decentralised small hospitals which are often located in rural areas. Similarly, we help to increase geographical access by building and equipping health infrastructures.

Financing health care services

We work on developing health care insurance based on mutual insurance system This is essential to guarantee the population's access to health care.

Assisting health ministries

We assist health ministries in developing a network of functional health entities and we support them in their role as organ that sets the standards, controls the quality and finances the healthcare services.

Developing staff competences

We work to ensure the ongoing training and specialisation of health executives, including hospital management, decentralisation of surgical skills, etc.
