Chiesi Foundation collaborates with Cardinal Tonini’s Amahoro Pro Africa Foundation, which has been in Burundi since 2000, where it is carrying out projects in the socio-health field in collaboration with the Hospital and the University of Ngozi. The aim is to improve the quality of the hospital’s health care, through the reorganization of the most neglected wards. The University of Verona is also involved in the project, making the professionalism of doctors and technicians available for on-site training initiatives.
We followed a reorganization plan of maternal and childcare through the construction of the Mother and Child Hospital Center, supporting its start-up and preparation with adequate medical equipment and the continuous training of local nursing staff.
In addition, in 2017 the Foundation was committed to launch a new project at the Ngozi Hospital, aimed at creating a unit dedicated to the integrated reception of mother and child and the promotion of the “kangaroo method” (Kangaroo Mother Care, KMC).
