The work of the participants in this Unique primary health care program – who are teachers and 95% women – is extraordinary. They are real medical heroes
In this "Picture of the Day" The work of these female superheroes, who have performed hundreds of primary medical procedures since December 2022. This program is because there is no access to medical care here. These women are the only possible resources, and what they do is extraordinary. Location: East Sumba - NTT.
The primary medical care program that Fair Future and Kawan Baik have set up is unique worldwide. A reminder? This program aims to provide theoretical and practical means to teachers in isolated villages to offer first medical care in the event of injury or illness of a child or an adult. It's simply outstanding; it saves lives.
It focuses on specific populations, groups and communities that are excluded from healthcare access systems and left behind. It offers knowledge and tools to teachers in ultra-rural villages to heal and save lives. It is the teachers of schools isolated from everything who provide first aid; 95% of them are women. There is no doctor or access road here, and the nearest health centre is often hours away. Fracture? Malaria? Dengue? A snake bite? A burn? A choking person? Acute fever in a child? These women, these teachers from isolated villages, are also caregivers, real heroines in their interventions.
Thank you for your interest and support, we love you.
