Guinea, like many other countries in Africa, has and continues to face a multitude of health care challenges.

In 1981, URC’s work in Guinea began with the Primary Health Care Operations Research Project (PRICOR), a multi-country research project led by our non-profit affiliate, the Center for Human Services (CHS), to guide developing countries in strengthening their primary health care services. After PRICOR ended, CHS continued the work under a project to help raise awareness about quality improvement.

Beyond our non-profit initiatives, URC went on to help the Government of Guinea improve equality in health services in accordance with Ministry of Health planning objectives.
