Low income families and People who are most in need, often do not receive necessary health services. Our floating clinic provides access in the most remote areas of the project zone
Insufficient resources, inappropriate allocation, and inadequate quality are major impediments to the delivery of effective health care that reaches the poor. This fact was a great motivation for us to build a floating clinic that gives us access to the most remote villages where health services are extremely limited.
We are well aware that despite efforts by governments and international entities, the health needs of marginalized people are not being fully met.
This is one of the main factors that motivated us to build a floating clinic that gives us access to the most remote villages in our concession where health services are extremely limited.
We conducted a health outreach program to 7 villages in the concession area in May 2019. This was so successful that community members asked for another one, so in December we conducted an outreach to 3 additional villages. Children and women in particular benefit from these programs. Pregnant women are monitored, and vitamin supplements provided which increases children’s resistance to disease and improves their chances of development, growth and survival.
In 2020 we conducted a further 3 health services outreach programs. We have succeeded in expanding the partnership we have already established with local health and government officials as we work together in improving access to health services in our concession area.
This initiative meets the following UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)
