Summary

This project provides basic healthcare in remote areas where healthcare is no longer available due to the conflict. Community health workers are community members trained, paid, and supplied to provide free basic and emergency healthcare to children 0-5 and the most vulnerable, and link complicated cases to specialized healthcare. They also monitor outbreaks (monkey pox, cholera, measles) Sometimes it costs community members as much as 100$ and 12 hours to reach the nearest health facility.

Challenge

Political violence has left more than 3,176 fatalities in Anglophone Cameroon since 2016. Mortality rates in some villages are as high as 33 deaths per year/1,000 people. 37% of health facilities have closed permanently. Innocent citizens are frequently dying of preventable diseases because they are hiding in the most remote communities and cannot access quality healthcare.

Solution

Trained community health workers are community members who are trained and paid to provide free healthcare to children aged 5 or less and to anyone with simple malaria. They also help identify outbreaks, deworm, inmunize, and provide supplements for children, and can help send complicated cases to the nearest hospital.

Long-Term Impact

This project will restore healthcare in two communities, preventing avoidable deaths and illness. The project will run for as long as the conflict continues, reducing mortality and morbidity. Children which would have died will get to live and have the chance they deserve.

Additional Documentation

This project has provided additional documentation in a DOCX file (projdoc.docx).
