In Africa

The organization actively operates in 8 sub-Saharan African countries (Angola, Central African Republic, Ethiopia, Mozambique, Sierra Leone, South Sudan, Tanzania and Uganda) with long-term healthcare cooperation projects, within a framework of social inclusion. CUAMM cooperates with Africa in hospitals, small health centres, villages and universities working alongside local people.

CUAMM’s action focuses on health system strengthening and targets the weakest population groups, particularly women and children. Interventions include prevention, screening and treatment programmes on several diseases; creation or strengthening of referral systems at community level; training of doctors, nurses, midwives and other professional providers; field research.

CUAMM has launched a project in support of 28 religious congregations working on the front line to help manage hospitals and health centers in 23 African countries; its goal is to provide them with health training and technical assistance and to help strengthen relations between the congregations, governments and local ministries.
