We act with humanism, impartiality and respect for universal medical ethics . To access patients, we are committed to intervening in a neutral and independent manner.

THE VALUES and PRINCIPLES of our action, enshrined in our CHARTER:

1. The patient first

2. Revolutionize humanitarian medicine

3. Responsibility and freedom

4. Improve the quality of our actions

5. Trust

ALIMA promotes and defends the principles of fundamental human rights. ALIMA has a zero tolerance approach towards people guilty of acts of gender-based and sexual violence as well as towards inaction in the face of alleged or proven acts of violence. The protection of those benefiting and impacted by our intervention is our top priority in everything we do. Anyone collaborating with ALIMA undertakes to:

  • Respect the charter, the code of conduct, institutional policies including the policy for protection against abuse of power and gender-based and sexual violence, the policy for the prevention of corruption and fraud;

Since its creation in 2009, ALIMA has treated more than 7 million patients, and today deploys its operations in 12 African countries. In 2020, we developed 67 humanitarian medical response projects to meet the needs of populations affected by conflicts, epidemics and extreme poverty. All of these projects support national health authorities through nearly 357 health structures (including 45 hospitals and 312 health centers). We work in partnership, particularly with local NGOs, whenever possible to ensure that our patients benefit from expertise where it is located, whether in their country or the rest of the world. Furthermore, to improve the humanitarian response, we are carrying out operational and clinical research projects, particularly to combat malnutrition and viral hemorrhagic fevers.

THE ALIMA TEAM: more than 2,000 people currently work for ALIMA. The field teams, closest to the patients, receive their support from the coordination teams generally based in the capital of the countries of intervention.

The Paris and New York teams are actively working on fundraising and representing ALIMA. The rest of the ALIMA Galaxy includes individuals and partner teams who work on behalf of other organizations such as the medical NGOs BEFEN, ALERTE Santé, SOS Médecins / KEOOGO, AMCP, the research organizations PACCI, INSERM, the Universities of Bordeaux or Copenhagen, the NGO Solidarités International and many others.

Since 2015, the escalation of violence in Burkina Faso has led to an unprecedented deterioration in the humanitarian situation in the country. In June 2023, the regional humanitarian assessment of the UN and its partners in the Sahel highlights that one in three people needs aid and protection in Burkina Faso, Out of the 2,789,772 internally displaced persons (IDPs) due to conflicts and violence in the sub-region (Burkina Faso, Mali, Niger), 74% are in Burkina Faso. Indeed, according to the National Emergency Relief Council (CONASUR) as of March 31, 2023, Burkina Faso had 2,062,534 IDPs, an increase of 88% compared to January 31, 2021. The most affected regions are the Sahel with 501,961 (24.3%) the Center-North with 493,954 (23.9%), and the North with 256,060 PDIS (12.4%).

Faced with the increase in the medical and nutritional needs of host and displaced populations, the ALIMA/Keoogo/SOS Médecins BF consortium has strengthened its response to emergencies in the Northern regions (DS of Titao and Ouahigouya), Center-North (DS of Boulsa, DS Kaya, DS of Boussouma and DS of Barsalogho) and the Sahel (DS of Dori) for:

1. Restoring access to care through the reopening of closed health facilities: ALIMA and its partners support the reopening of closed health facilities in partnership with the Regional Health Directorates, District Management Teams and Territorial Communities. In this context, ALIMA and partners support health training with human resources, medicines and medical-technical equipment.

The consortium also supports the referral and counter-referral system and encourages the retention of health personnel in areas affected by the crisis.

2. Reach the most vulnerable populations through the implementation of advanced posts/mobile clinics ALIMA and its partners are setting up advanced posts/mobile clinics to provide medical, nutritional and psychological care to displaced populations grouped together on sites transit or official. Cases requiring inpatient care are referred to the nearest health facility.

3.Improve the provision of community-based care in health areas in difficulty: ALIMA and its partners support the strengthening of the provision of community-based care in health areas in difficulty in conjunction with the Regional Directorates of the Health and District Management Teams and also train mothers of children under 5 years old in screening for acute malnutrition using the Shakir strip, which allows early detection by measuring the upper arm circumference.

4. Strengthen rapid response mechanisms to health emergencies: ALIMA and its partners participate in RRM mechanisms through (i) health, humanitarian and epidemiological monitoring (ii) identification, training and monitoring of medical and support staff national NGOs for emergency response interventions (iii) the investigation and confirmation of alerts (iv) the deployment of rapid response teams within 7 days after confirmation of the intervention.

In partnership with the UGP-PFS, the GRET and the ISSP, through an innovative approach the project consists of supporting but also including families in the monitoring of the child’s first 2 years (1,000 days), the period most important in its growth and development. In total, 10,000 identified mother-child couples should benefit from the program over 3 years. This project, based in Ouagadougou, is based on the national social safety net program and aims to improve the nutritional status of these households and facilitate their access to a complete package of health services.
