Our Work

 

our work

Community Empowerment works in tandem with local leadership to provide essential health care, while creating a self-sustaining system in which our assistance is no longer needed.

The first step is to work with our partner communities to identify their needs and provide regular medical and surgical care. Then, we help the communities form partnerships with existing medical and social services to ensure this care will be ongoing.  We help establish a governing board over the clinics and provide training for medical students, residents, and medical providers.  Ongoing care is ultimately provided by community health care workers, nurses and doctors.

primary care teams

Primary care teams regularly work with local medical providers to provide training and care of chronic diseases.

surgical care teams

Surgical teams operate alongside local providers and provide medical and surgical education for medical students, residents and faculty members.   Surgical care includes orthopedic, urology, gynecology and more.

infastructure support

A business model for water purification and distribution services was created to provide ongoing infrastructure support.  The sales from the potable water helps finance clinic operations, including the hiring of local medical providers and provides income to several needy families.

sustainability

We create permanent clinics staffed with local providers, whom we train, in order to provide long-term care to the community. We work to strengthen the local leadership so that they are able to take ownership of the primary care services and water purification and distribution activities.
