According to the world Health Organization (WHO), health is a state of complete physical, mental and social wellbeing and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.
Achievement of good health is critical in enhancing human development. A sound health delivering system, good nutritional status, food security and absence of epidemic diseases are the conditions that produce healthy people capable of participating in a country’s economic, social and political development.
To promote rural development and to improve the quality of life in rural communities through commitment to improve the quality of health care in rural areas. These health services should be quality and accessible, comprehensive, with efficient referral systems and fully involve the local communities.
Health Services need to be provided in all areas with appropriate attention being given to the availability of safe water and sanitation, health and hygiene education, waste management and air pollution, as well as to appropriate outbreak reporting and response. Other environmental health services such as malaria control also need to be coordinated with all health services.
These measures include educating rural communities and enabling families to adopt appropriate hygiene practices. In addition, we support testing and implementation of income-generating strategies that allow households and communities to acquire better nutrition and health status. Increased income enables communities to improve nutritional status, particularly that of women and children, and to build and maintain water and sanitation systems. To succeed we Develop partnerships with communities, NGOs, private providers, faith-based organizations and the government
To achieve sustainable improvements in health status among vulnerable groups, especially the geographically remote, women of childbearing age and children under five.
We promote improvements in health policies, financing mechanisms and basic services while enabling communities to adopt effective health practices. Deficiencies in health policy, financing and service availability undermined attempts to achieve lasting improvements in health status among poor rural communities. Communities often do not have the financial resources to sustain improvements, the quality of care and patient referral are not assured, and basic services are often inaccessible and rarely equitable or lasting.
