The localities of Ouessè and Tchaourou have benefited from this impeccable social protection tool. Their populations will now be able to be consulted and treated free of charge in the partner hospitals of the National Social Protection Agency (ANPS). The government of Benin has made available to vulnerable layers a basket of care containing common pathologies, even caesarean section in order to relieve them of their various ailments. On the occasion of the ceremony, the ministers recalled the Government’s vision for vulnerable populations and reassured the beneficiaries of the measures taken so that this project suffers nothing in its implementation, whether in health facilities or in In the Centers for Social Advancement, firm instructions are given so that the beneficiaries are properly oriented and treated.
