How it began
Since 1983, the Kfarhabou Health Clinic has offered primary health services to the local community, and seven other neighboring villages. Today, the medical services provided include: general medicine, pediatrics, cardiology, neurology, orthopedics, and dental care. Over 8000 residents have access to the clinic and 150 patients benefit from these primary services every month. Despite assistance received from the Kfarhabou Municipality and a number of NGO’s, the center lacks a number of equipment that would highly improve its services, which directly benefits patients from low-income backgrounds.
How it worked
The project supplied the dispensary with medical equipment to improve the quality of services provided. Among the needed equipment is a gynecological ultrasound ecographic machine, which is essential for the diagnosis of pregnancy, foetus health, and other subjects relevant to female reproductive wellbeing. The project has also provided the center with an EKG machine to allow specialists to accurately diagnose cardiac patients. Additionally, other equipment was also provided to replace outdated ones.
