On Call Africa began working with Simonga Rural Health Post in 2021. We will work with the health post to train Community Health Workers from within these communities. This will help to strengthen the existing health systems, ensuring that patients have access to medical advice and referrals when needed. The Community Health Workers will be provided bicycles once they complete their training to enable them to carry out home visits for sparsely populated communities.
We are also working with partner organisations to develop programmes to give access to telemedicine services, and to pilot a digital information system for case management. As well as supporting Community Health Workers. We will also work partners to address poor water, hygiene and sanitation practices, as well as transport links within the catchment area.
