Focusing on Families
With a lack of quality medical care and knowledge, the Akaa Project emphasizes families through our healthcare initiatives. From children nutrition courses to clean water and sanitation, we take a holistic view of family health. We provide services and education to improve overall family and child health.
Our healthcare goals:
- to educate families about ways to improve health, prevent illness, accidents and reduce risks.
- to insure that infants, children, adolescent s and mothers receive highest quality health care
- to work with district, national government and international institutions to increase the availability of skilled and qualified health care providers.
- to enhance the fair distribution and appropriate use of medications, supplies and equipment to improve health.
- to work with traditional healers in alternative approaches to health care.
