Community Based Treatment

Community Based Treatment

Ensuring access to treatment and healthcare services is an essential component to a healthcare system. However, populations in remote and underserved areas are often left without the same level of health services and care as populations in urban areas. Resource and time constraints to reaching urban facilities often leave rural population at a disadvantage and contribute to morbidity and mortality in emergency situations. Offering community-based treatment opportunities in communities where people live is a successful strategy to reach rural populations.
 
TRAction is funding two studies to explore community-based programs in Bangladesh. Once study utilizes trained community health workers to provide emergency treatment to address pre-eclampsia and eclampsia cases. The second study explores potential roles the community can play in preventing early marriage and early child-bearing.
