ORDER’s Medical Team reaching the needy in remote areas – delivering care at their door step

Lack of awareness about hygiene and sanitation practices, and preventable diseases in the target areas have resulted in spread of hepatitis A, scabies, diarrhea, malaria, and cholera. Communities are unable to manage these health problems due to lack of knowledge about the causes of these diseases and access to appropriate health services. There is also scarcity of health care professionals, such as TBAs (Traditional Birth Attendants), LHVs (Lady Health Visitors), LHWs (Lady Health Workers), Doctors and nurses in the rural areas to deal with health problems related to women health and maternal and child mortality issues. There is great need to increase focus on programs such as mother and child health (MCH), and to prevent spread of communicable diseases like scabies, diarrhea, malaria, cholera and hepatitis A. Since many males from these areas work in Middle East countries as laborers therefore few cases related to hepatitis B, C and HIV/AIDS have been reported.
