One of the main limiting factors to the development of the village is the lack of medical care.

The closest health-centre is situated 10km from Issaogo; during the rain season, walking, or even cycling on the track is very difficult and covering the distance can take a long time. Moreover, this closest health-centre is not equipped to care for pregnant women.

The situation proves often fateful for the villagers: last year, several women died during childbirth because they could’nt reach the health-centre in time.

Faced to this dreadful situation, the villagers decided to build a “Health and Social Promotion Centre” (CSPS).


- Building a health centre
