Challenge

Zawiya Ahansal currently has one government operated health clinic in the village of Aguddim. The clinic was established in 2009 and is staffed by two midwives and one nurse. Despite the existence of the clinic and new and improved access to health care, many women chose not to use the clinic for health problems and care during pregnancy and childbirth. For this reason, one our primary goals is to facilitate a mutual relationship with the community and the clinic, and hopefully increase clinic u

Solution

Specifically, the goals of the Community Health Program are to: 1. Increase utilization of the Zawiya Ahansal clinic and Azilal hospital by local villagers. 2. Provide education on safe water, sanitation and hygiene. 3. Provide education on improving nutrition, especially for women and children, and proper food storage strategies. 4. Provide general health education for the community. 5. Identify key community health promoters and facilitate leadership to ensure program sustainability.

Long-Term Impact

With the guidance of local leadership and the Moroccan Association Amezray SMNID, we anticipate the Community Health Program to provide long-term sustainability and improvements in the health of these rural Moroccan communities. With good health, people can focus on important issues like higher education, income generation, and community well being. We are excited to develop strategies for these long-term goals.
