We believe that the best way to help healthcare prospects in rural areas
of the developing world is by sponsoring local individuals to undergo
professional healthcare training.
This approach is endorsed by the WHO's World Health Report 2010: 'Increasing Access to Health Workers in Remote and Rural Areas through Improved Retention.'
Working in partnership with rural communities entails commitments:-
Commitment from the community to propose a suitable candidate for training and to help with their travel and living expenses whilst at college. Subsequently to pay them to work in the village clinic, once they've qualified.
Commitment from the candidate to study and achieve the qualification and return to their village to work for a period of time at least equivalent to the length of their sponsored training. Also their commitment to contribute to the training of future students by accepting them on placement at their village health clinic.
Most importantly, a commitment from us to guarantee sponsorship for the duration of the course.
We believe that this model will lead to sustained development of rural healthcare and make a real difference to people's lives. Just one nurse in one community will have a benefit to several thousand people.
Although the initial project is for nurses, it has the potential to be extended to other types of healthcare personnel, as is felt necessary by a community.
