Construction of a maternity hospital in Liboré

Whilst Niger has some of the highest rates of infant and maternal mortality in the world, Total has responded to the concerns of people living in the rural community of Liboré by funding the building of a maternity unit. The unit opened on March 10, 2014 and forms part of the town’s health care provision. It includes a labor ward, birthing room, two wards with eight beds each, a waiting room and an office for the midwives. Total hopes that the initiative will contribute to improving childbirth conditions for women in Niger, which are particularly difficult in rural areas.
