General Medicine

I

n 2006, after noticing that community members had to travel several kilometers to access health care, we built a health center in Ushpa-Uspha. Currently, we have two doctors, two nurses, a biochemist, and interns that attend to the general medical needs of the community. Our health center receives on average 100 patients a day, and commonly treated diseases include malnutrition, diarrhea, and flus. Other services provided by our medical professionals include pre- and post-natal monitoring, vaccinations, child development evaluations, and treatment of wounds and burns.
