On June 15th 2015, the multiparty agreement of the Centre Cardio-Pédiatrique Cuomo in Dakar was signed. This deed formalised the partnership already operational between the Senegalese Ministries of Health and Economy as well as the CHNU Fann, La Chaîne de l’Espoir and the Cuomo Foundation.

On the same day, the first stone was also laid. The preliminary works of the construction site are now complete.

The management of the Centre is to be framed by a Senegalese legal entity, yet to form.

The centre is due to open in 2017.
