Health & Nutrition Education
In each community, we offer a class for all local villagers outlining some of the greatest ways they can improve the health of their families. We teach villagers ways to prevent many of the diseases we later treat in clinic with the rural health workers.
There is no substitute for solid education in the area of good public health practices. In the long-term, this will do more for the health of a village than any number of clinics.
Topics include: hand and oral hygiene, water purification, malnutrition, food groups, dehydration, house ventilation and more.
We require any villager who would like to be seen in the medical or dental clinic to first attend this class in order to stress the importance of disease prevention.
