Health Projects Run by the AHS
Improving Communications and TransportThe lack of transportation and communications are major problems throughout the Anglican Health Service because of the remoteness of so many of our communities. Four of our facilities now have ambulances, and four have dinghies. We will endeavour to improve access to all of our facilities. We have installed radios in seven of our Aid Posts, enabling the Community Health Workers stationed there to seek immediate professional advice and help when necessary.
Five of our health facilities still need to connected by radio.
Providing the Necessary Equipment and FacilitiesMany of our centres have been handicapped in their efforts to provide a good service by inadequate facilities and equipment. We have started to remedy this situation. Some progress has already been made: we are particularly grateful to Rotary in Australia, who have sent 2 consignments of used hospital equipment. There are still many basic things we need, ranging from stethoscopes to beds, and everything in between.
Some refurbishment of health facilities has been completed:-
