IN THE FIELD “The OPEC Fund is


committed to supporting access to healthcare as a goal in itself, as well as to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals.”

OUAGADOUGOU WATER SUPPLY (ZIGA PHASE 2) PROJECT


The OPEC Fund co-financed the construction of a dam at Ziga on the Nakambe River (known as the Ouagadougou Water Supply project) and helped provide facilities, pipelines and equipment to treat and pump water to the capital city Ouagadougou, to benefit more than 800,000 people. A second loan from the OPEC Fund in 2015 helped increase storage capacity and construct new pumping stations, benefiting more than 2 million people.


The project has improved living standards and health by providing access to safe drinking water and sanitation in impoverished areas in and around the capital Ouagadougou. Works included: increasing storage capacities and constructing new pumping stations between the Ziga dam and Ouagadougou; reinforcing and extending the water distribution network; and installing new connections and standpipes.


he Hospital of Ziniaré – a modern and fully equipped health center in the town of Ziniaré, 35 km from the capital Ouagadougou – is also co- financed by the OPEC Fund, BADEA


and the government of Burkina Faso. The hospital provides access to specialized,


high-quality healthcare services and is expected to improve maternal/infant health and fight diseases endemic to the area. Dr Alkhalifa said: “The enjoyment of the highest attainable standard of health is one of the fundamental rights of every human being. The OPEC Fund is committed to supporting access to healthcare as a goal in itself, as well as to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals. Our commitment is clear: as of December 31, 2018, our cumulative approvals to development projects in the health sector was well over US$1 billion.” The OPEC Fund has worked with Burkina Faso


for more than four decades. During that time, the organization has approved more than 40 public sector loans amounting to nearly US$300 million to the country.
