Closing Workshop of the Regional Project “Regional Response to Covid-19 in North African Countries”


On the 26th and 27th of April 2023, Loli and Luc took part in the regional project’s closing workshop in Cairo with representatives from the four countries involved: Algeria, Egypt, Morocco, and Tunisia. The aim was to draw lessons learned from the various interventions and to make recommendations to all the project partners: the European Union, the International Organization for Migration (IOM), and the Ministries of Health of the 4 countries.
This project provided the funding framework for the “Improving access to healthcare for migrants and vulnerable populations in Algeria” project, in which The Constellation collaborated:

The Constellation was the only face-to-face representative of activities in Algeria; Dr Youcef from IOM Algeria gave a virtual presentation. The two days of work enabled intense exchanges on themes proposed by the IOM, including “Social cohesion and community resilience”.
One of the recommendations made was to strengthen civil society’s capacity to mobilise, using an appreciative methodology to ensure more effective interaction with migrants and vulnerable populations.


What makes us human?

We would like to thank IOM Algeria and the Algerian Ministry of Health for allowing La Constellation to work with local associations and institutions on this project. We would also like to thank the people at the IOM regional office who helped us share the results with other countries. Their dynamism and openness have stimulated and strengthened our commitment to disseminating the SALT-CLCP methodology to other actors in the region. We hope that this work will continue with IOM and/or other local partners.
