Turkish Cooperation and Coordination Agency (TİKA) equipped the HASENE Vocational High School for Health Services, which was built in the education complex owned by the HASENE Association, which provides education and dormitories for orphans and impoverished children in Niamey.

Niger ranks low on the health infrastructure adequacy indices published by international health organizations. Health services are insufficient in the country, and healthcare providers fail to meet the medical needs of citizens.

Especially people living in rural areas in departments other than Niamey, the capital, have difficulty in finding healthcare providers at hospitals and need to travel hundreds of kilometers for treatment.

TİKA continues its efforts to increase Niger’s human capacity in the field of health. The Agency equipped 5 classrooms, a meeting room, and an administrative unit at the HASENE Vocational High School for Health Services, which was built in the education complex owned by the HASENE Association, which provides education and dormitories for orphans and impoverished children in Niamey. The educational institution supported by TİKA will serve 200 students every year.

The delivery ceremony held for the equipment was attended by the executives of Niger-Türkiye Friendship Hospital; Tanju Polat, TİKA’s Coordinator in Niger; and officials from Tele Sahel, Niger’s national broadcaster.

After the ceremony, opportunities for cooperation and internship between the HASENE Vocational High School for Health Services and Niger-Türkiye Friendship Hospital, as well as the possibility of admitting boarding students from different parts of Niger, were discussed.
