With your help
We support the Seniors & Children Improving thier Healthcare
Improving geriatric healthcare for Seniors and General healthcare for Children In communities where healthcare is stretched and limited, we make sure people can see a doctor and get the care that they need.
What's the problem?
In poorer countries, older people struggle to get the specialist healthcare they need.
There aren't many hospitals or clinics - the nearest might be miles and miles away, so you can't just pop to the GPs
You might have to get a local bus or motorcycle taxi to the clinic - but you might not have enough money
When you get to the clinic, healthcare might not be free and medicines could be too expensive Even if you can afford to pay, the doctor might not be able to treat you because geriatric training is so limited
How we help
