The medical clinic, located in the village of Desab, serves a number of villages and reaches an estimated 10,000 people in the Cabaret region.  The medical needs in this community are great.  The people are faced with malnutrition, bacterial and parasitic infections, hypertension, lung disease, and more.  The women do not have access to consistent pre-natal care and post-partum complications are a significant threat.  Our goal for the clinic in Desab is to work with the current clinic staff to provide consistent, sustainable, quality health care for the community.  The clinic currently operates one day a week.  We want to see the clinic open 3 days a week with the nurse, health care agents and pharmacy tech; 2 days a week with the doctor and the dentist.  We believe these goals are realistic and attainable and are excited to be working toward them.  We also want to continue to take medical personnel to the area to provide increased care that might be needed, training for the current staff, and to take medical care into the outlying villages that do not have easy access to the clinic

We are fortunate to have the current clinic to work in.  The clinic has two exam rooms, a pharmacy room, an intake area and a waiting area.  The pharmacy is small and chronically under stocked.  The exam rooms suffice but are in need of improvements.  There are some structural issues in the rooms that need to be addressed.  The clinic has a variety of equipment available (ex: autoclave, glucometer, etc), but no consistent resources by which to fully take advantage of these.  The clinic has a generator that provides needed electricity.  

Our goal for the clinic in Desab is consistent, sustainable, quality health care for the community.  We are excited about the opportunity to do this and to share hope with this community.
