The African Development Bank (AfDB) has mobilised €120 million (US$129.3 million) in funding to improve access to Morocco’s healthcare infrastructure. The programme aims to expand healthcare access to enhance well-being, particularly of women living in rural or isolated areas. 

The initiative has three main components: improving access to primary and secondary healthcare; modernising healthcare by improving connectivity; and strengthening governance through better allocation of human and financial resources.

The project will focus on the Beni Mellal-Khénifra, Draa-Tafilalet and Guelmin-Oued Noun regions.

The specific projects include:

a. Women’s and children’s care units at the new Guelmim Regional Hospital and the Fkih Ben Salah Provincial Hospital
b. Building hospitals including the Beni-Mellal Regional Hospital Centre and the Azilal Provincial Hospital Centre and equipping the Fkih Ben Salah Provincial Hospital Centre.
c. Equipping remote sites with telemedicine and teleconsultation facilities. 
d. Strengthening the Ministry of Health and Social Protection staff and the territorial health workers. 
e. Increasing the number of graduates from higher nursing and health technology institutes.
