Public health approach in marginalized communities


Published on: 25/06/2019

We are providing medical care services to marginalized communities of Nepal. We work with community health center. Our Medical team consists of medical doctor, nurses and volunteers go to work in community clinic. They run extended clinic to provide medical consultation for the local people. At this moment we go to Kavresthali clinic every Tuesday for the health checkup of the local people from the area. It has supported us to identify the public health issues in Nepal especially in the rural communities. Public health campaigns are designed based on those issues. We also conduct public health awareness campaign at communities to meet the health need of the local people.

Last month Sally Gosling, an experienced Nurse from UK joined our public health and medical care program. She with Raju, a local volunteer conducted health sanitation and hygiene practices awareness campaign at early childhood development centers of Tarkeswore municipality. On Tuesday she worked with Dr Laxmi at Kavresthali health clinic. We served around 15 patients in a day. Many people visit clinic for blood pressure check up. Children are brought for fever, cold and cough. Few of them were suffered from diarrhea. Wound is common among visitors. In total the team works 4 days in a month. This has supported people especially children, women and senior citizens to get the doctor service at their door side.

Public health and medical care program of VIN in align with Nepal government health program is successful to contribute in creating health communities. It has supported to identify major health issues in communities and address those issues.
