Main objectives – issues to be addressed: - Peer to Peer mutual and community-based non-profit health care schemes for poor and vulnerable groups have more equitable access to health services of appropriate quality. - Activation of civil society and capacity building in the target of staffing the new project and the possibility of finding specialized employment opportunities.
Expected results: The development of the new service will be implemented through the creation of a Community healthcare & Emergency Cooperative involving local communities and socio-economic stakeholders by activating a mutual and community-based non-profit health care scheme. The project plans the creation of a permanent station in the area of each partner, the provision of the necessary ambulance equipment, telematics etc, the development of the new Cooperative and the capacity building of its staff.
