The Badiène Gox Initiative (BG) is an integral part of health promotion as it ensures the community's commitment to the health of the mother, newborn, child and teenager. To do this, it adapts to Senegalese socio-cultural values, promotes women's leadership, joins the community system in health huts, neighborhoods and villages and relies on community leaders to raise awareness at all levels to meet health indicators. Indeed the BG, sister of the head of the family or godmother of the children, has a role of framing and support of the women of reproductive age (FAR). Its actions enable community members to develop individual skills for the health of the mother-child couple.
