To restore and improve health services for survivors of the devastating August 2018 floods in Kerala, Americares India is upgrading health centres. The work is part of long-term recovery efforts for the flood-damaged districts.
Americares India saves lives and improves health for people affected by poverty or disaster so they can reach their full potential.
For people affected by poverty or disaster, health is essential to a better future. With good health, they can attend school, be productive at work, care for their families and contribute to strong communities. Poor health puts all of those opportunities at risk.
Health is fundamental to all aspects of development.
In an emergency, we launch rapid responses and restore quality health services. We respond when others don’t.
We provide patients with treatment, prevention, education and health management services – the foundation of a productive life, full of opportunity and possibility!
Children come to school to learn. But too often, schools are places where they become ill. We improve the health and learning of school children through skills-based health education, water sanitation & hygiene (WASH) and school health services.
We protect health care workers at risk of occupational exposure to infections such as Hepatitis, HIV and Tuberculosis among others.
We support, design and implement clinic-to-community programs in areas such as maternal, new born and child health, mental health, hypertension and diabetes.
Due to lack of access and affordability, individuals and families cannot get the medicine they need to stay healthy. By partnering with hospitals & clinics, Americares India is working to change that!
The success of Americares India has been characterized by timely response, meaningful impact, high integrity and intense passion for the work. To deliver medicine, relief supplies and health care to the needy, Americares India has developed a platform based on strategic partnerships, field experience, high efficiency and tight auditing procedures.
