Clinical outreaches provide support to our partner health facilities and CHWs. The NAWEC team travels to hard-to-reach villages, taking clinical care into the field. NAWEC staff served almost 3,000 clients, conducted 1,018 cervical cancer screens, and assessed the nutrition of 976 children. -19 reduced our ability to gather crowds, but NAWEC clinicians persevered, serving the neediest.
Clinical outreaches are a core strategy for making access to health services easier, especially for rural communities that cannot easily reach health facilities due to challenges, such as transport, and long distances to health facilities.
NOTE: The outreach services are supported basically by all NAWEC staff, without particular people fully dedicated to outreaches.
