Need: RURAL PRIMARY HEALTH EXTENSION AND MEDICINE SUPPORT
RURAL PRIMARY HEALTH EXTENSION AND MEDICINE SUPPORT
Alternative for Rural Movement (ARM) is a state level voluntary organization working for the education, health, empowerment and economic wellbeing of the deprived remote rural sections of Balasore district in north Orissa ,India with emphasis on women and children mainstreaming activities. It (ARM) has recently been handed over with one defunct Governmental Primary Health center (PHC) located at one remote paschimbad village under the Public Private Community Partnership scheme for reformed and efficient functioning of the state’s sick health system. The PHC caters to the health awareness and health treatment needs of 30 villages in 4 gram panchayats (Village clusters) with 2 Sub Centres under its jurisdiction covering a population of 27,000 in its feeder area. The turnout of patients has suddenly gone up to 3200 / month against previous Governmental record of 620 patients per month due to assured facilities, regularity of hospital staff and peoples faith in certainity of voluntary efforts. The Orissa state government in its transfer memorandum has made provision only for staff salary of the PHC and some fund for annual infrastructure development. ARM as a grassroot voluntary organization feels constrained to meet the raising medicine cost of the hospital as the visiting poor patients solely depend on hospital medicines. We need to bear the medicine cost of patients like malaria, diarrhoea, dysentery, skin diseases, cough & cold, anemia, T.B., Leprosy, STD, RTI, HIV including mother and child health related patients. Therefore generous assistance for obtaining critical fund support for meeting the much needed hospital medicine cost and conducting mass village awareness programme on malaria treatment, water and sanitation, Mother and child health as well as HIV/AIDS prevention drives. We estimate a requirement of USD 4000 for annual medicine requirement and USD2000 for health extension activities to improve health awareness and referral motivation in the operational area of the hospital.In this critical situation we need your helping hand to raise funds for the medicines to serve our needy backward people for their good health in the remote rural area. Any amount you contribute will go directly to our health fund .Kindly contribute, link or propagate voluntarily our appeal for a great cause.
