During the project period, 97 villages were reached three times each to conduct mobile medical clinic services. This covered 162% more of the planned target of 60 villages. Through these clinics, 22,590 patients received basic curative health services. These services included consultations with doctors, primary tests and screening, and treatment. Patients were also referred for more specialized treatment. Among the patients, those with disabilities comprised around 5%, while 40% were age 60+. Overall, women made up 70% of the 22,590 patients.
The medical team provided 76 health awareness training sessions for 540 health assistants and community volunteers. These individuals play an important role in their communities in addressing preventative healthcare issues and WASH-related illnesses. The project team also supported the government’s Universal Childhood Immunization (UCI) program.
183 awareness sessions on health and hygiene promotion were conducted to women, men, girls, and boys in the wider community. Around 8,981 people were reached.
