Home-based Healthcare – Progress and Success!
As you may know, our Naturally Africa Foundation registered charity runs alongside Naturally Africa Volunteers. We strive to provide the volunteer support and the funds that each project area needs in order to make a meaningful difference.
One of our charity’s main areas of focus is the Home-based Healthcare appeal that helps to fund government training for a group of dedicated participants (£3,000 per group). Once qualified, the group is equipped to provide essential primary and palliative care to the residents of rural villages that otherwise have limited or no healthcare available.
We are currently celebrating the amazing achievement of our two most recently qualified home-based healthcare (HBC) group. Each of the thirty course participants has been training hard and they have all passed the exam and received the government-awarded qualification.
Our focus now is to fully support these groups, as they build on their healthcare experience and provide a vital service in their community. As a medical volunteer in Malawi, you will help to support these groups and previous groups by helping with the outreach work in the community and working alongside them to deliver basic primary care. Medical volunteers are key to delivering the training sessions that prepare these groups for the government course and their roles. You will plan and present sessions to the groups on home-based care topics, including HIV/AIDS, malaria prevention, drug administration, first aid, wound care, infection prevention, sexual health awareness, nutrition and digestion.
The Malawi Medical Volunteer project is a diverse project with huge potential to improve the standard of primary and palliative care provided to rural communities in Malawi. We would love you to support this project as a medical volunteer and help the project thrive.
