Business and Health
Very active on the African continent, the Ascoma Group is involved in major health concerns such as malaria, HIV, diabetes and other chronic diseases. Aware of the human, economic and social challenges posed by these diseases, the Ascoma Group joined the Health & Business Association from 2004 to 2016. The activity of the association will soon be taken over by the CIAN (French Council of Investors in Africa) of which we are also members.
In this context, we remain vigilant against potential health hazards. For example, we launched an information campaign to educate our employees and clients about the Ebola virus and the preventive measures to adopt. An information note has been sent to all employees and contacts of our African subsidiaries and prevention materials have been sent to risk areas.
It is essential that responsible companies integrate health, social and environmental concerns into their activities and interactions with the countries in which they operate and thus contribute to sustainable development.
This project aims at financing, in the form of a zero-interest loan, agricultural micro-projects or microbusinesses having a direct impact on the lives of families in Ivory Coast.
We are thus a privileged partner of this excellent initiative.
Ascoma's international involvement
The group contributes to the development of human resources in the country in which it operates by offering apprenticeships or alternating apprenticeships and a youth integration policy.
