The United States Agency for International Development (USAID), in collaboration with the Government of Guinea, formally handed over renovated infrastructure at Kindia National Health School on June 5, 2017. The facility also received equipment offered by USAID for strengthening and improving basic health education and quality of midwifery training in Guinea.
USAID – through the “Health Service Delivery” (HSD), a 5-year project – led U.S. government efforts in Guinea to improve access, availability and quality of maternal, neonatal and child healthcare and family planning, in alignment with the national health development plan and Ebola recovery plan. USAID was accompanied at the ceremony by representatives of the Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research and the Ministry of Technical Education, Vocational Training, Employment and Labor, key health community representatives of Kindia, and national and international development partners.
The newly renovated facilities will reinforce the capacity of local health care providers and support the health and well-being of the people of Kindia and the region.
