Community Health Care
Recognizing the need to extend the hospital’s reach to the most isolated and poorest communities, THHT is operating a community outreach project targeting those mothers and babies who are more isolated and unable to access hospital based care.
The project provides home visits, vaccination posts, maternal and infant health education and training of local community health workers to deliver cleaner and safer births in the community. THHT is also improving the referral processes for facilitating better identification of emergencies in the community and getting women in high risk situations to hospital without delay. In the past three years our Community Health Agents completed almost 30,000 household visits and we trained and equipped 110+ Traditional Birth Attendants who collectively assisted in 2,466 deliveries.
