Located in Dakar, the UNOPS office in Senegal has developed a strong working relation with the Governments of West Africa and international partners over the years. It provides technical support in strategic development areas including elections; Procurement and related capacity building; Environmental protection, as well as infrastructure rehabilitation and development.

In Benin, UNOPS has supported the Ministry of Health in its response to COVID-19 through the acquisition of medical equipment and delivery of one fully equipped mobile laboratory (P3) and two national laboratories (P3). UNOPS is continuing to support the Ministry of Health in the framework of the PAUPPI project, through the acquisition of medical equipment and the delivery of four Epidemiologic Treatment Centers in the cities of Lokossa, Abomey, Porto Novo and Parakou.

Building on this ongoing collaboration, UNOPS has recently signed a new project with the Government of Benin. The objective of this project is to strengthen the capacities of the Benin Ministry of Health through the acquisition and installation of medical and non-medical equipment in the healthcare facilities located in Cotonou, Lokassa, Abomey, Parakou, Natitingou and Porto-Novo.

In the long term, both ongoing projects will contribute to enhancing the national healthcare platform in Benin.
