Project Report | Jan 18, 2021
Quality health care vital to women's empowerment

By Elizabeth Appleyard | Program Administrator

Covid-19 created significant challenge for all our healthcare providers in 2020. The fixed clinics continued with all aspects of patient care with strict sanitation and social distancing, referring the Covid cases to the government hospital. The 14 health posts in villages cared for people in their community.

In the year, there were 231,000 patients and 172,000 health education participants. Over 26,000 children were assessed for nutritional status and 1,944 treated for malnutrition.

"There are many people who has no access to a health clinic, so their children suffer from malnutrition because of ignorance. AIL Community Health Worker posts find such children in the villages and refer them to the clinic. The children receive food and nutrition health messages till they get fine. We give them consultations on how to serve healthy food as well."  (Nutrition Section staff member)

When women know how to take care of their health, are healthy and have children who are well nourished, those women are more productive in their family unit and community. They are more likely to prioritize education of their daughters and seek education and skills training for themselves.

Women’s empowerment, education and health are all connected!

Thank you for your support.
