M@SAN: using the SMS as a prevention tool in rural Burkina Faso
The MOS@N initiative was developed to improve healthcare coverage for pregnant women, infants and persons with HIV through the use of mobile phones in rural areas, ensuring better access to care in the Nouna health district in Burkina Faso. After the first 24 months of operation, the results are encouraging, with an increase in immunisation coverage, screenings, and a decreased contact drop-out rate.
Recognized as a public utility since 1999, the Pierre Fabre Foundation works to provide populations in developing countries with better access to medicines and quality care. Its five action areas of intervention are the training of healthcare professionals, the fight against sickle cell disease, access to healthcare for vulnerable populations, e-health and dermatology. In 2021, the Foundation conducted 35 programs in 20 countries in Africa, South-East Asia, Lebanon and Haiti.
