Rural Health Outreach

HEALTH

Some of the communities that we work with are severely under-served in terms of health services and health infrastructure. Villages in Nsong Circle of Peren have remarked that they have not seen a doctor or a government officer stepping into their villages since their villages were established. The neglect in basic health care has a telling effect on Pregnant women and children among whom mortality is high. Sick people are left to the mercy of the elements, as they have no access to a health facility. A primary health center where a nurse is available is a day’s walk away from the village as many villages don’t have a motorable road.  Pro Rural has been bringing Doctor and nurses in their program villages with the help of few departments and agencies that provide them one-time small fund for its health out-reach programs.
