This project is a collaborative effort of KOICA and Peruvian Ministry of Health to enhance access to maternal and child health, medical services, and prevention of tuberculosis for residents of Comas regions, a slum located near Lima. KOICA implemented "The 2nd Korea - Peru Maternal & Child Health Center Improvement Project in Comas District", which was carried out for 5 years from 2011 to 2016. By investing 3.2 million USD, the center was constructed within a public health center. Also through the support of basic medical equipment and healthcare personnel trainings, 270,000 local residents now benefits from the necessary maternal and child health care.
What we do
Number of patients doubled, achieving the third largest number of medical examinations among public health centers in the region
As the maternal and child health center was newly built in the region, the number of medical examinations and patients in the center has doubled, and it has achieved the third largest number of the medical examinations among 45 public health centers in the northern region of Lima. By additionally supporting tuberculosis management capacity-building programs in northern Lima in collaboration with the World Health Organization (WHO), medical services provided to local residents was further enhanced.
