Health Needs Assessment
Before our village clinics, we go on-the-ground to visit the villagers door-to-door. The purpose of these visits is to firstly, publicise our clinics. More importantly, we administer a quantitative survey of their general health needs. Additionally, we include certain topics of interest that we wish to find our more about, such as MSK problems or Health-Seeking Behaviour. These surveys tell us whether our programmes have been effective in improving the health status of villages. Also, they help us formulate better strategies to target specific health problems within each village.
