AREVA Corporate Foundation: Free traveling health clinic makes the rounds near Arlit, Niger

In brief


November 03, 2015

The Foundation agreed to fund two health and medical rounds in the northern bush of Niger within a 200-300 kilometer radius of Agadez to reach isolated nomadic and semi-nomadic peoples.

The first round was carried out from October 13 to 24 in the Arlit region. The free health clinic covered more than 1,000 kilometers in a specially equipped 4-wheel-drive truck, providing healthcare, vaccinations and diagnostic approach to people without access to medical centers, particularly women and children.

Each round was organized and managed locally. All of the participants – i.e. 6-8 medical, paramedical and logistics personnel – are Nigerien.

The second round will be carried out in similar fashion in early 2016.
