The Ambassador of the United States to Mauritania participated in an inauguration ceremony for the Bouhadjra Health Clinic in Diawling Park on 20 February. This project was identified and prioritized in conjunction with Exercise FLINTLOCK 2013 activities and undertaken jointly between the Mauritanian and U.S. governments.
The U.S. government funded the clinic’s infrastructure up to seven million MRU; the Ministry of Health provided the clinic’s staff and equipment; and the Ministry of Environment provided facilities for the staff and program sustainment. The U.S. government hopes this joint project will enhance stability, improve livelihoods and contribute to the development of the N’Diago district.
