The maternity and children's ward at Hospital PVM in rural Ecuador needs quality medical supplies to support the 25 childbirths monthly, the prenatal exams for mothers, and many treatments for kids.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
Rural communities in Ecuador lack access to reproductive health services and quality medical care for their families. Andean Health & Development operates a self-sustaining hospital that provides quality medical care to all people in the community.
How will this project solve this problem?
Children and mothers will receive the high level of quality that Andean Health & Development emphasizes with its Physician Residency and Nurse Training Program.
Potential Long Term Impact
Provision of quality medical supplies helps sustain this hospital for the long-run. Mothers and kids receive the care they need and more of the hospital's revenues can be used toward training rural health professionals rather than on supplies.
