Healthcare

Access to healthcare varies across countries, groups and individuals and is largely influenced by social and economic conditions. Those in low income areas, such as the areas our projects are active in, are exposed to greater environmental health risks, are less well nourished, and thus face a higher risk of illness. Lack of access to clean water, sanitation and information on good hygiene practises exacerbate the situation with the result that easily-treatable illnesses proliferate.


Our healthcare projects aim to serve many areas of public health interest, such as hygiene, water security, HIV/ Aids awareness, maternal health, and the reduction of child mortality rates. Through setting up clinics, providing access to clean water and sanitation, educating local communities and providing capacity, we can make long-term positive impacts on the health of disadvantaged communities.
