“AMESOCO” Meeting the Health Need of Poor Rural and Urban Communities
Guinea, West Africa.
The 2015 Ebola crisis in West African highlighted the woeful inadequacy of the health systems in the countries affected: Guinea, Sierra Leone and Liberia, in particular, the rural districts and the poor urban neighborhoods. While a large international response was effective in stopping the epidemic, the inadequacy of the health system in Guinea remains largely unresolved.
With a mission to meet the unmet health needs of the poor rural and urban communities in Guinea, a group of concerned Guinean professionals joined forces to establish the health sector non-profit non-governmental organization AMESOCO (Assistance Médico-sociale Communautaire) (Community-based Socio-medical Assistance). AMESOCO is officially registered and authorized by the Ministries of Health and Interior of the Republic of Guinea to provide community based health services throughout Guinea. AMESOCO is seeking the support of generous benefactors for the mobilization of the material, financial and technical resources necessary for its operations. Contributions of medical and hospital equipment, medical supplies, medication, etc. are highly appreciated.
AMESOCO can be contacted in the US through Mr. Souleymane BALDE, US Representative, and Vice-president in Charge of Planning and Programming, at: firstname.lastname@example.org, or telephone, 1(212)633-0362.
