Medical Project - Malawi
Currently, the government health care system in Malawi is arranged into three different levels; local health care centres(dealing with the most basic easily treated problems & offer maternity services), district community hospitals(dealing with more pressing cases, they provide secondary health care, including some fundamental types of surgery) and central hospitals(offering tertiary care)
This diverse medical project acts as a local health care centre – treating those conditions; that when left untreated, prove more dangerous. Within the rural communities in Malawi, access to health care is limited and therefore, many diagnoses are never made and left untreated.
The project aims to educate and train members of the community to identify and normalise health care, as well as to support medical treatment. As with all southern African medical service, resources are incredibly tight, and hands are always short.
