Summary

Follow-up of patients is vital to understanding the impact we are having on each of our beneficiaries' lives. Project Harar wishes to review patients who received surgery from our international medical team during our Complex Missions from 2012 - 2016. A small team of our medics who have been involved in multiple missions over the last 4 years will travel out to Ethiopia to meet with their former patients and review their conditions now, and assess how the surgery has changed their lives.

Challenge

In the past, we have found it difficult to follow up with our patients after they have had their facial surgery by our team of medics. This is due to most of our Complex Mission patients coming from very rural regions all over Ethiopia. Some have no means of communicating to our team after they have left the mission. Without sufficient follow-up we have little knowledge on the impact we are making to each of our beneficiaries and therefore cannot develop our future programs.

Solution

This project is the first of its kind for our charity. Our small team of medical volunteers will be assessing our patients' medical conditions as they are today and review the change the surgery we offered during our Complex Mission has had to them physically. They will also be evaluating the social changes each of our beneficiaries may have encountered since their operations, allowing us to develop our community awareness programs for future missions.

Long-Term Impact

The project will allow our medical team to assess the true impact they have had on each of our beneficiaries. It will give the charity a chance to consider what areas can be improved to make sure we provide the best possible care to each of our patients, pre-op, during the mission and post-op. The project will also guide us in what follow-up care is really needed after all our missions to ensure each of our beneficiaries go on to lead a normal healthy life without further health complications.
