SUPPORT The Healthcare Facility Building Fund

Healthcare Facility Fund

 

Janjay Healthcare Center Project 

Health Is Life

 

Summary

 

Janjay Healthcare Project will provide healthcare access to more than 5,000 residents. The center will offer primary health care with a focus on treatment, education, referrals, maternal, newborn and child healthcare. The facility will maximize a clinic-to-community approach by connecting women and children to excellent treatment, disease prevention, and contraception along with health education. 

 

Fundraising Goal $82,000

 

Challenge

 

Children younger than five years of age have less chance of surviving with 160 deaths per 1,000 children. Sicknesses such as malaria, malnutrition, water-born illnesses, dehydration and diarrhea are common causes of death among children. 

 

Over 60% of women give birth outside of a healthcare facility. The situation has become more critical due to the Ebola crisis resulting in more than 4,600 cases and 4,000 deaths. This healthcare crisis has also precipitated severe social and economic breakdowns across the country. According to Liberian authorities, the virus spreads disproportionately, in that 75% of Ebola cases and deaths were women, due to the role they play as primary caregivers in families. Many of these caregivers were females under 30 or lived in rural areas. The early and unplanned pregnancy rate is unusually high as a result of poor education, lack of contraception and family planning resources.

 

Solution

 

Reducing the maternal and infant mortality rates will be one key outcome measured by the impact of the health center. The center will be used to provide primary health care with a focus on treatment, education, referral, maternal, newborn and children healthcare. The facility will maximize the clinic-to-community approach by connecting woman and children to treatment, disease prevention, and contraception combined with health education.  Our project team collaborates with key stakeholders throughout the region to train staff and volunteers to develop and implement care plans for newborns, maternal and children, hypertension, malaria and diabetes. 

 

 

Long-Term Impact

 

Providing healthcare to more than 5,000 residents will significantly impact morbidity and mortality rates.  Increasingly families will be able to break the cycle of poverty and achieve integrated benefits: doubling (on average) household incomes, diversifying the economy and improving diets, strengthening the local environment, and establishing a generational cycle of healthcare awareness and wellness for generations.

 

Metrics:

➢    More than 1500 women, girls, children, infants, will have access to health services 

➢    More than 1500 women, children, girls will be linked to referral services 

➢    More than 1000 children and infants will have access to nutrition and vaccinations 

➢    More than 1000 women will have access to safe and clean deliveries

We will use the clinic-to-community approach to connect families to treatment, disease prevention, and health education.  Our project team will collaborate with key stakeholders to train our staff and volunteers to develop care plans for newborn, maternal and child, hypertension, malaria and diabetes.
