Medical Services: Patients in the hospital in need of general emergent care will be provided necessary treatment by a member of the medical team, who will work eight hours daily in the hospital and assist with on-call needs. The medical team will also teach medical education. Some of the ailments they expect to treat are Malaria, Diabetes, Hypertension, Gastroenteritis, Typhoid infections, and OBGYN conditions.
Social Services: Team members will offer support to patients seen during the project and collect data on the services rendered during the project. The purpose of this research will be to document patient care for the duration of the project, to track current patient needs and to help predict future needs and possible trends. A needs assessment will also be conducted on the availability of select resources and means of support, including local NGOs, schools, and religious institutions
Community Art: The community needs assessments will be used to achieve the goal of developing prevention and intervention tools useful when discussing the importance of Malaria in the community. A valuable too could be a culturally appropriate Malaria coloring book to distribute to children and families.
