Summary

The Community Health Care Worker Project has two phases. The First Phase involves medical treatment and medication for the elderly, expecting mothers and infants, in remote, difficult-to-reach rural communities and the careful training of committed, dedicated and devoted medical students at our School of Health as the Community Health Care Workers. The Second Phase involves the construction of small Health Care Facilities in these rural areas to be operated by our trained medical students.

Challenge

Too many people, especially the elderly, expecting mothers and infants, have no access to basic health care services and many are dying in these remote, difficult-to-reach rural communities from very easily treatable illnesses/diseases, such as malaria, infected wounds, cough, childbirth etc. The main problem is poverty, compounded by the difficulty of reaching them and lack of accessible health care facilities. The seriousness of this problem is obvious when we actually visit these communities

Solution

This project will train community health care workers, who will walk 10 to 15 miles into remote, difficult-to-reach rural communities to provide medication and treatment to the elderly, expecting mothers and infants. To ensure sustainability, small health care facilities will be built and operated by our trained community health care workers under our direct supervision. The minimal treatment fees collected from the patients already treated will be used to pay the community health care workers.

Long-Term Impact

Your donation to this project will: 1) literally save lives; 2) provide medical training and initial employment to permanent Community Health Care workers; 3) assist in the construction of permanent small health care facilities in these remote, difficult-to-reach rural communities; and 4) enable healthy farmers in these communities to improve and increase their productivity. A healthy population ensures an increase in farming activity, an improved rural economy and much improved health and life.
