furniture being transported by hand to the HP
One Family Health team in Rwanda is proud to announce the opening of Gizisa Health Post and 14 others in late December.
Since our last report, the team has been focused on training new franchisees as well as procuring and outfitting the new facilities with furniture, equipment, and an opening stock of drugs and medical supplies.
Training is a critical part of OFH's work with nurse-franchisees. Initial training is a two-week program, consisting of one week of classroom-based training that includes both a review of clinical protocols as well as practical orientation to operating a Health Post and being a business owner. The second week is spent shadowing an existing franchisee, during which the trainee observes processes and procedures put into practice and practices use of the mobile phone-based electronic system to capture patient data and record any products and services provided.
Equipping Gizisa and other new Health Posts brought logistical challenges, including roads that proved impassable to the large trucks delivering equipment. In one location where the truck could not reach the location of the Health Post, community members helped to carry the equipment the last few hundred meters to the facility itself.
One Family Health again thanks you for your contribution to our work expanding access to quality, affordable healthcare in rural Rwanda.
