Kfarhabou: Improving primary healthcare


undp lebanon - the supply of medical equipment at kfarhabou

Since 1983, the Kferhabou Health Clinic has offered primary health services to the local community and seven other neighboring villages. Today, the medical services provided include: general medicine, pediatrics, cardiology, neurology, orthopedics and dental care. More than 8000 residents have access to the clinic and 150 patients benefit from these primary services every month. Despite assistance received from the Kferhabou Municipality and a number of NGOs, the center lacked a number of equipment that would improve its services, which would directly benefit patients from low-income backgrounds.

 

Highlights

  • Nowadays, 8000 people now benefit from a properly equipped health center with a 27,210 USD donation

The Live Lebanon project aims at supplying the dispensary with medical equipment to improve the quality of services provided. Among the needed equipment is a gynecological ultrasound ecographic machine that is essential for the diagnosis of pregnancy, fetus health and other subjects relevant for female reproductive wellbeing. The project also provided the center with an EKG machine to allow specialists accurate diagnosis of cardiac patients. Various equipment was also provided to replace outdated ones.
