New Health Centers Open Doors in Casablanca-Settat Region
Several primary care urban health centers and a diagnostic and treatment center for respiratory diseases have recently been launched in the Casablanca-Settat region.
Minister of Health and Social Protection Khalid Ait Taleb inaugurated the facilities in the presence of Wali of the Casablanca-Settat region Mohamed Mhidia and several officials.
Health center Al Wahda in the Hay Hassani district–established through a partnership with the “Abdelhak Tahiri” Foundation–targets a population of 30,000 inhabitants, providing services primarily for child vaccination, prenatal care/pregnancy monitoring, and family planning programs, as well as diagnosis and monitoring of chronic diseases and other routine examinations.
The center also includes the diagnostic and treatment center for respiratory diseases in Ain Chock, established through a partnership between the Health Ministry and the Casablanca Prefecture Council. In addition to general medical exams, the center provides radiological diagnostics, microscopic examination of samples, and respiratory functional explorations (EFRs).
In Settat, Dakhla Health Center has been renovated and bolstered with the material and human resources necessary to improve primary healthcare services, along with the working conditions of healthcare professionals.
Ait Taleb also launched the services of five other health centers, including “Al Baraka” in the Nouaceur province, “Bni Yakhlef” in the Mohammedia prefecture, “El Karia” in the Sidi Bennour province, “Mimouna” in Settat, and “Ibn Al Mouhajir” in the El Jadida province.
These new facilities aim to strengthen healthcare services in the various prefectures and provinces of the Casablanca-Settat region in specifically addressing primary-level healthcare services for the growing population–as well as providing a variety of medical and curative services–including general medical exams, nursing care, monitoring of chronic diseases such as respiratory diseases, diabetes, and hypertension, as well as maternal and child health, school health, and health education/awareness services.
