February Report

Dear donors,

This February we completed our last month of mobile clinics. Despite your relentless support, we could not mobilize enough funds to continue working in March. 

Because the remaining funds are much smaller than what is needed to run a mobile clinic (vehicle, nurses, doctor) we have re-thought the project to focus back on rural community health workers. With the funds available we will recruit and deploy two community health workers in two of the most neglected communities in the South-West Region of Cameroon. They will be providing basic health treatment for free to children 0-5 and free malaria treatment to all members of the community, and refer complicated cases to the nearest health facility. The two communities picked are very remote and have no available health services, so this project will continue having a great life-saving impacts. We will be reporting to you their progress every few months. If our fundraising efforts pick up, we might thing of scaling the number of community health workers, there are hundreds of neglected hard-to-reach communities we could target.

This is the last report of the mobile clinic team, before we move on to this new stage.

The clinic provided a comprehensive basic primary health care package which included general consultations for all diseases, antenatal consultations to pregnant women, Nutritional services, and HIV services, Screening for chronic diseases like diabetes and hypertension, sensitization on health issues. 

Targeting

The team targeted communities based on their access to health care, displacement status concentrating activities mainly in hard-to-reach communities with a great number of displaced persons and returnees. 

Results for the month of February 2021

  • A total 898 people were consulted by the mobile clinic. Amongst this 438 were male and 421 were female
  • A total of 10 new people were diagnosed to be living with HIV and linked to treatment. 7 of these were males and 3 were females
  • The clinic provided Ante-natal consultations to 24 pregnant displaced women, most of them had not done it before. Many of them complained about having to move long distances to access healthcare.
  • A total of 142 people were diagnosed of malaria and managed appropriately. 71 of these were males and 71 were females.
  • 59 children were screened for malnutrition and three cases identified were put on treatment.
