Describe the need affecting community
How will this Advance project help to address the need?
Grace Children’s Hospital will continue to provide in-patient and out-patient care for children and families with tuberculosis, HIV/AIDS, and respiratory infections as well as provide follow-up care. This project will continue the current level of care, expand patient education for community health, and increase the number of patients the hospital is able to see. The staff will continue the full services of Grace Children’s Hospital in Lower Delmas, including x-ray, medication, and lab availability for health promoters. Grace Children’s Hospital provides care for those who would not be able to afford it otherwise and gives hope for children to live beyond their low life-expectancy.
Describe the primary goal of the project
To provide hospital and out-patient care for children and families with tuberculosis, HIV/AIDS, and respiratory infections and follow up with clinical healthcare for patients discharged from Grace Children’s Hospital and their families. Long-term, the project hopes to expand its reach to more families and to educate the community about healthcare and nutrition.
