The Ivory Coast’s urban drinking water sector has long been considered a model in sub-Saharan Africa, but the Ivory Coast’s more than decade-long crisis has caused delays in investment and infrastructure maintenance, resulting in massive population displacement. Contaminated drinking water increases waterborne diseases. The consumption or use of unsafe water causes cholera, dysentery, typhoid etc. Public health depends on improving access to water and sanitation in the Ivory Coast. 



Tabagne is a town in northeastern Ivory Coast. It is a subprefecture of the Bondoukou Department in the Gontougo Region, Zanzan District. In 2014, the population of the sub-prefecture of Tabagne was 16,970 inhabitants.


The NGO Adia Tchin, created in 2016, acts for the empowerment of women in ten villages in the sub-prefecture of Tabagne : Amoitini, Dedi, Dingbi, Gbané, Gnomangon, Iguela, Kouassi-Kouma, Tabagne, Wakiala, Zéré) in the Department of Bondoukou in northeastern Ivory Coast. It has 324 women in the ten villages selected for this project. The latter is supported by all the village chiefs concerned.
