Aydafer Health Clinic Appeal

$

Without access to primary health care, women are unable to give birth safely; babies are unable to access immunizations; children are unable to receive treatment for preventable diseases and couples are unable to access family planning services.

The health status of Ethiopia is poor, even compared to other low-income countries in sub-Saharan Africa. The population suffers from a huge burden of potentially preventable diseases such as HIV, malaria, tuberculosis, intestinal parasites, acute respiratory infections and diarrhoeal diseases.

For most people living in rural areas of Ethiopia, their only access to health care is via a local Health Post, which are staffed by local, female Health Extension Workers. Health Posts are an essential hub of health activity, with Health Extension Workers providing immunizations, family planning and birth control, assessing and treating malnutrition, dispensing medication, disease testing, health education and promotion, referrals to Hospitals and a safe place for women to give birth.

In 2019 we will begin construction of the Aydafer Health Post, a new clinic that will provide the only access to health care for over 8,000 rural people and create a lasting impact for this region.
