Facilitating access to medical care for the underprivileged
Geographical remoteness, lack of infrastructure, high cost of care, traditional medicine: the difficulties and disparities accessing health care are striking in Morocco. Although there are significant public efforts to reduce inequality, rural and mountainous areas, remote communities and peri-urban areas suffer from lack access to basic health care.
In an effort to help, the Foundation has been active in favor of impoverished populations who do not have access to health services because of distance or lack of social coverage. The approach adopted has been focused on bringing medical services closer to these populations, by providing free primary care to as many people as possible. To this end, the Foundation has deployed logistical and human resources to meet mobile assistance needs.
The Foundation has set up medical units, specially equipped with diagnostic equipment, instruments and consumables in various specialties. It has relied on its partners - medical associations, the Health Department and local authorities - to set up a sustainable local medical campaign program.
