What is it – Built to Care

What is it


The Government of Côte d’Ivoire has recognised the challenge presented by the provision of progessive public health care to its citizens, and a health care system capable of protecting them from potential outbreaks of infectious diseases. Accordingly, the government has made the modernisation of healthcare facilities a policy and budgetary priority in order to improve on access to quality health services.

In addressing the needs of the nation, the Ministry of Health and Public Hygiene signed a contract on the 19th September 2019 with NMS Infrastructure Limited for the design, construction and equipping of six new hospitals across the country.
