Improve the health and well being of the inhabitants of the surmang region and surrounding hinterlands populated by rural tibetans with no other access to medical care, with an emphasis on maternal/child health, promoting safe pregnancies and decreasing maternal and infant mortality.
We've treated over 150,000 patients for free in the past 10 years, including medicine. Our 40 community health workers in the Surmang region assist in the births of about 60 babies/year.
The 40 million ultra-poor of China, the people who earn less than US 14¢/day. Our prototype is active in the ethnic Tibetan region of Yushu Prefecture, Qinghai Province. The specific targets are mothers and children, particularly those who are nomadic or farmers.
Direct beneficiaries per year:
This year in addition to continuing to update and enhance the training of the community health workers and the two tibetan physicians at our core medical clinic in the surmang valley, physicians also worked training physicians at three of the four chinese clinics destroyed in the earthquake of 2010, which are now rebuilt. This trainig focused again in the basic physical diagonosis, maternal and child health and use of medical equipment which was available at the chinese clinics but not fully utilized due to lack of training. We worked with village health workers from these clinics improving their diagnostic and clinical skills. We also built one birthing center at our core clinic.
