Health inequities or inequalities in the state of healthcare lies in the distribution of health resources between varying population groups. This is mainly based on social conditions that prevent lifesaving services from reaching those who need it most. HHRD has partnered with WHO, and other agencies, to provide much needed medical services
Mother Child Health Care Center
Lifesaving services are being provided to reduce the maternal mortality rate such as postnatal checkups, health awareness sessions, and vaccination services. HHRD ensures the staff is properly trained to assist these women and children, along with arranging specialist clinics.
Prevention of Blindness
The complete loss or deterioration of one’s eyesight can feel frightening and overwhelming, leaving those affected to wonder about their ability to maintain their independence, pay for medical care, retain employment, and provide for their families. HHRD conducts free eye exams and operations, provides proper medication and recovery workshops to ensure successful treatments.
Mobile Medical Units
Mobile Medical Camps and Units bring relief to hundreds of villagers who are either unable to afford medical care or reside in rural areas that oftentimes are unreachable during natural disasters. HHRD's Mobile Medical Units provide medical assistance, including medical examinations and medicines.
Emergency medical professionals, enabled with ambulatory training, increase their capacity to cope with any given emergency through these services. This also helps provide a means for patients to successfully attend rehabilitation and therapy sessions without the trouble of securing transportation.
In 2019, With Your Support:
Thirty-one-year-old Farzana Hussain arrived at our Mother Child Health Care clinic in Mianwali, Pakistan with lower abdominal pain during her 8th month of pregnancy. Due, to it being close to the end of her third trimester there was a risk of a premature birth. Her husband was advised to take her to a government hospital where the baby could receive intensive care. According to her husband they lost two children during delivery due to the negligence of doctors which is why he was reluctant to take his wife. After an examination, she was admitted and gave birth to her third baby boy. Her family was grateful for the co-operation of the HHRD clinic staff and their dedication and devotion towards delivering a healthy baby. They were also grateful for the availability of this clinic as a modern facility in this remote part of the Punjab.
