Job Description

ALIMA has been present in CAR since 2013. Its main activities are focused on screening and medico-nutritional care for children, reproductive health, primary and secondary health care and response to epidemics. Five projects are currently under implementation, including 4 early recovery projects of the health system in the health districts of Bimbo, Boda and Haut-Mbomou in Zémio and Obo financed by the Bêkou Fund, an RRM project mainly in the Nana-Gribizi prefecture funded by ECHO since April 2018 including an operationalization component of the Mbrès health area.

In December 2013, ALIMA provided medical support in 3 IDP sites on the outskirts of Bangui and then set up a free primary health care package in 5 CDS of the DS in Bimbo and Bangui. The healthcare offer was extended to 13 CDS in Bimbo in 2018. The project aims to strengthen the capacities of the Health District with a view to full empowerment.

The second ALIMA intervention began in the DS of Boda in June 2014, a town facing violent community clashes. ALIMA enabled the reopening of the Boda hospital and the Boboua CDS (Mbaïki DS). Today, the project covers the hospital and 9 health facilities to ensure the empowerment as well as the resilience of the local health system and the community.

Since April 2018, ALIMA has been involved in the DS of Kémo and Nana-Gribizi within the framework of the RRM. The project includes humanitarian monitoring and post-shock needs analysis and has made it possible to carry out 8 needs assessment missions for displaced populations in order to meet their needs. In addition, ALIMA has started to support the Mbrès hospital, in particular the Maternity and Pediatrics departments, the stabilization of trauma cases and other emergencies. Since April 2019, the action at the level of Nana-Gribizi has two components: an RRM response strategy to humanitarian shock and in the event of an epidemic and a second component in support of the FOSA of the AS of Mbrès.

Finally, since August 2019, ALIMA has started its intervention in Haut Mbomou in Obo and Zémio, financed by the CHF and Bêkou fund. The intervention responds to a desire to ensure the functioning and access to quality health services with the aim of strengthening the national health system and local health actors.
