EDA community health initiatives focus on the health of children, mothers and those women and men who are suffering from HIV/AIDS. We have constructed, equipped and staffed 2 community health care centres, one of which has been upgraded to an advanced care centre with full a pharmacy and lab facilities.
Highlights of the EDA community health program include:
• Basic health care is provided to 20,000 community members annually, with12,000 vulnerable children receiving free medical check-ups and treatments
• Our maternity clinic has reached 90% of the pregnant women in the target area and has almost doubled the percentage of safe deliveries to 85%.
• We have delivered HIV/AIDS awareness workshops to over 50,000 community members
• 500 women and men have received HIV/AIDS voluntary counselling and treatment at our clinics
