(TAP) - About 30 projects aimed at promoting frontline health will be funded from next February 10, with a budget of 79 thousand dinars for each project, under the "Sehati" (My Health) programme, funded by the European Union (EU) with a total value of 950 thousand dinars, project coordinator, Zeineb Tourki said on Monday.

In a statement to TAP, Tourki said that the application for this funding opened at a workshop held Monday in Tunis, to enable associations active in the health field to finance their awareness raising effort, and with the aim of promoting the frontline health in 13 governorates. She said that similar workshops will be organised in the governorates of Gabes, Sidi Bouzid and El Kef to enable other associations to apply.

"The implementation of the selected projects is scheduled to start on March 16 and will continue for over six months from that date," Tourki said.

She noted that the EU will fund new projects in October 2020, which will be carried out in coordination with health structures, civil society and municipal councillors.

The three-year "Sehati" programme, which started in 2019, is part of the joint "Essaha Aziza" programme between the Ministry of Health and the EU, which aims to improve frontline health services in 13 governorates.

The "Essaha Aziza" programme was launched in September 2017 and runs until September 2023. It provides that the Ministry of Health is tasked with equipping frontline centres with medical equipment, while civil society is responsible for the implementation of awareness-raising projects.
