Providing Better Access To Healthcare
There are many health related issue existing in the coastal communities. Therefore, the project is paying special attention to issues such as the prevalence of communicable, non-communicable and preventable diseases, malnutrition and under-nourishment.
We will do this through improving the access of local communities to all the seven Basic Health Units (BHUs) in the project area.
For this purpose, the project has engaged the services of Community Health Workers for better provision of health services. The centres listed below are the first to receive support.
The project is also installing mobile health centres in the most inaccessible areas as well as providing ambulances to allow quick access to major hospitals for those who need emergency medical attention.
