Community Health Programmes
The East West Foundation works in local communities to improve the health outcomes through education and awareness programmes.
The importance of health education and awareness is just as important as treatment of health issues.
An important part of The East West Foundation's mission is to create healthy communities, therefore we run a number of community health programmes that educate communities about diseases, with a focus on prevention, detection and treatment methods. This approach, coupled with the UHCC and the Mobile Medical Clinic services, has had a profound impact on healthcare and awareness in the Edaikazhinadu region.
Since 2006, The Foundation has benefitted over 10,000 communities members through its various health programmes.
Disease and Health Awareness
Community development and social workers conduct regular sessions in surrounding villages to create awareness regarding the prevention and cure of prominent disease in the area. Their focus is on ensuring people are aware of ways they can reduce their risk of contracting certain diseases including malaria, dengue fever, TB, typhoid, diabetes and other such diseases.
Sessions are conducted on a regular basis within the Uluru Health Care Centre and in public centres in surrounding villages.
