Approach of Anan Clinica
- Setting up an education program on health subjects
The first objective is to provide the community of Nanatha with an education program on health subjects to improve knowledge about health, hygiene, and common diseases. A Village Health Committee (VHC) consisting of 15-20 people, also known as the activistas, helped to set up the programme. They are volunteers and are trained on subjects as malnutrition, diarrhea, hygiene, malaria, Sexual Transmitted Diseases, HIV/AIDS and family planning. These problems cause the highest mortality and morbidity and are relatively easy to prevent. The activistas are responsible for passing this knowledge over to community the community
- Setting up a program for education, agriculture and water management
After several years working on health subjects, we have extended the program with education, agriculture projects and water
management. 3 School-buildings have been realized, besides better housing for the school-teachers. In total there are 5 classrooms for primary pupils and 2 classrooms for infants. There are 2 vegetable gardens, maintained by the local people. Clean water is supplied at the school, for the children. This system will be extended, so clean water will be available for all people.
- Cooperation with other non-governmental organisations
The goal is to collaborate more with NGOs that are active in the area on the problems of Nanatha and their need for structural help.
We pursue to be a well-established base for different non-governmental organizations and public health campaigns and to implement programmes that concentrate on preventing diseases and promoting health clean water and better knowledge of agricultural in general.
