Between February and September 2022, The Constellation’s mission was to encourage Algerian civil society and health professionals directly involved in the care of People in Socially Vulnerable Situations to design in synergy a strategy based on their experience and implement it.
Composed of health professionals, association executives and volunteers, and peer educators, the participants presented the results of the various projects and activities they carried out during the year, with migrant and vulnerable populations at the level of their wilayas (provinces).
In June, new groups of facilitators were trained in the SALT-CLCP approach in the cities of Annaba, Béjaïa, Oran, and Tamanrasset. In total 71 persons from civil society and the medical sector came together. They applied SALT and CLCP to themselves as they built their dreams for their cities in 15 years from now, when free and equal access to health would really be achieved.
As part of his project initiated by the Ministry of Health (MOH) and supported by the International Organisation of Migration (IOM) local office in Algeria, a team from The Constellation trains 32 people in facilitation of SALT-CLCP. This training is the first step in a capacity building process aimed at increasing and improving the involvement and access to health care of target populations, including migrants.
Onesmus Mutuku facilitated a 3-day workshop at l’Afrikana, a community-based organisation that, among other activities, facilitates sharing and learning to prevent teenage pregnancies.
The team explored SALT, home visits, and action plans.
