Presentation of the pilot project “Mama Sofia shortens distances in care” (Rabat , 23 May 2024)

The pilot project “Mama Sofia shortens distances in care”, an initiative promoted by the Mama Sofia Foundation under the patronage of the Presidency of the Council of Ministers in the framework of the Mattei Plan for Africa, was presented today in Rabat, at the Ministry of Health and Social Protection of Morocco. The ceremony was attended by the Moroccan Minister of Health and Social Protection, Prof. Khalid Ait Taleb, the Italian Ambassador to Morocco, Armando Barucco, and the President of the Mama Sofia Foundation, Zakia Seddiki Attanasio.

The project, carried out thanks to the collaboration between private actors such as Vexavit and Dedalus and the Gaslini Hospital in Genoa, envisages the creation of a system for the continuous monitoring of the participating patients’ health parameters through the use of wearable devices capable of developing a continuous and technologically advanced medical check-up system. The system will also allow the collection of statistical data useful for identifying – thanks to advanced technologies and procedures that can easily be replicated in other national realities – useful interventions to improve the overall efficiency of the healthcare system in the country of reference. The initiative will have its first development in Morocco, considering the strong ties between the country and Ambassador Luca Attanasio, Consul General in Casablanca from 2010 to 2013, and husband of Zakia Seddiki Attanasio, President of the Mama Sofia Foundation, of Moroccan origin.

The Ambassador of Italy to Morocco, Armando Barucco, stated: “With the Mattei Plan, announced during the Italy-Africa Summit at the end of January, Italy laid the foundations for a new model of cooperation on an equal footing with Africa. The discussions on the launch of the first pilot projects with Morocco – such as the “Mama Sofia Foundation” project in the health sector – constitute a shared path in strategic sectors for both countries. The Mama Sofia project further enriches this very positive trend, fostering the exchange of technologies and good practices between Italy and Morocco”.
