Sick children should no longer be hospitalized in a ward with adults suffering from chronic and contagious diseases. Now, in the health clinic there is only one ward, a small room with 10 beds side by side. Also, mothers who have just given birth are housed in the same ward with their newly born babies. AHEAD plans to construct a separate ward for children.
BASIC DENTAL CARE FOR VILLAGERS
“Dental care is an anchor of a healthy body.” Dental diagnoses can detect many abnormalities, including heart disease, diabetes, as well as some cancers. For this reason even impoverished villagers need access to basic dental care with adequate and up-to-date dental equipment and supplies.
