Summary

"Family planning could bring more benefits to more people at less cost than any other single technology now available to the human race." UNICEF. There is no question the people we serve are desperate. Kenya has the highest unskilled abortion rate (46%) in the world because of inaccessible and un-affordable Family Planning services to reduce unwanted pregnancies. CHAT will continue our mission of mitigating extreme suffering by escalating access to Family Planning and basic healthcare services.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Poverty! The villages CHAT serves have no access to affordable family planning or basic healthcare, which often results in dangerous abortions, infanticide, schoolgirl pregnancies, prostitution, HIV/AIDS, malaria, TB, and conditions like obstetric fistulas, which place individuals at risk of being ostracized from their tribe. Also, rapidly growing populations in harsh terrains with little resources or healthcare infrastructure hinder the well-being of both individuals and ecosystems.

How will this project solve this problem?

Through it's door-to-door, mobile healthcare delivery, i.e., camel, motor vehicle, or by foot, CHAT is well positioned to provide Family Planning and basic health services that are key to reducing poverty brought on by over-population and environmental destruction. CHAT relies heavily on its extensive relationships with community and Kenya Ministry of Health staff to maximize it's efforts and places strong emphasis on performance metrics. It's methods are simple, but extremely effective!

Potential Long Term Impact

By providing sustainable Family Planning and basic healthcare services to rural and often nomadic villages of Kenya, CHAT can significantly contribute to reducing emotional and physical suffering caused by poor health and poverty. In addition, fewer unwanted pregnancies from effective Family Planning will result in less demand for environmental resources and, therefore, less environmental destruction in Kenya. CHAT serves tens of thousands of patients each year.
