THE PROJECT'S OBJECTIVES
The AGORA Association's “Keur Yaay” Project is a robust and strategic response to the challenges of access to emergency obstetric care for the rural populations of the Saint-Louis region. The purpose of this project is to respond to the needs of care, information and organization of perinatal follow-up of at-risk pregnancies, thus promoting the early identification and orientation of access to care. The maternity waiting home will provide a temporary place of stay for at- risk pregnant women living in remote areas, in their final stages of pregnancy, to be able to access an equipped hospital for a safe and supervised delivery.
Estimated Budget: US$25,000
Battling hypertension by reducing household salt consumption
The project objective is to reduce salt intake by a minimum of 30% in the households in Saint Louis Senegal and we set that as the target, toward which an intervention strategy was developed and implemented.
The intervention duration will be 6 months. Our slogan was “Kill the Silent killer: Let’s reduce salt.” The salt reduction curriculum and materials will be developed around the key messages: the harmful effects of salt on health and the salt reduction target; the recommended level of salt intake; and how to reduce salt intake.
Estimated Budget: US$45,000
