Facilitating Health, Nutrition Programs
The child mortality rate is still high in our target area and TBC is on the rise.
Palm2 combats malnutrition through preventive health programs and foster kitchen gardens. Intensive programs on prevention of tuberculosis are carried out and suspected cases are linked to the government prevention programs.
Some challenges encountered are:
- – uneducated parents
- – bad dietary habits
- – TB is taboo
- – symptoms are detected late
- – lack of awareness
- – medical centers difficult to reach
