Info about the Health Services and Health Education


The goal of this project is to promote healthy behavior in the community by organizing activities for youth, offering access to clinics and medical missions, and providing first-aid supplies and education. A local youth group is organizing a nine week educational course to educate the community on health issues such as nutrition, prenatal care, sexual education and HIV prevention, first aid, and hygiene. The youth group is also helping to organize trips for groups of community members to see medical specialists, a need that is extremely difficult for most people to afford. The youth group will use fundraisers to aide in paying for the health care, transportation, room and board, and other expenses that occur during medical testing in nearby towns.
