The Integrated Programme for Maternal and Child Health (PIMI II) is the second phase of EU support in the sector and started in the second half of 2017 for a duration of 4 years. The previous phase (PIMI I) lasted 4 years, from 2013 to 2016.
The overall objective of the programme is to contribute to the reduction of maternal, neonatal and infant and child mortality rates in all health regions of Guinea Bissau.
