A Focus on Community Health
This program combines the efforts of rural health promoters in each village with a professional staff of doctors and nurses in area clinics. The focus is on preventive health care through education about maternal and child health, nutrition, reproductive and sexual health, HIV/AIDS, eye care, vaccinations, latrines, and water treatment. The program also offers primary care and when necessary, referrals to regional hospitals.
