Bénin Santé is a purely voluntary association. Its aim is to support or improve the health situation of vulnerable persons, in particular children and young people in West Africa, in particular in the Republic of Benin.
Specifically, we focus on the following areas:
- Combat against hepatitis, especially chronical viral hepatitis B and C and their consequences. The project “Together against B” is the most important project of the organization since 2014. The efforts against Hepatitis are appreciated by the WHO.
- Offer operations for free or at low cost for the most deprived, performed by European doctors. As Bénin Santé is primarily active in the field of diseases of the digestive tract, hernia surgery and operations of hemorrhoids are currently being considered. Other operations, however, will also be offered.
- Combat against certain non-communicable diseases such as hypertension, diabetes and obesity of children (especially in urban areas)
