Efficient, well supported health services can be life saving however, around the world, one billion people lack access to healthcare because they live too far from a health facility or due to wealth, religious or political affiliation, military conflict or environmental catastrophe. In some instances local Governments are to blame while in other cases systemic issues of racism, gender bias or physical access to a healthcare facility or practitioner is not available.
More than 3 million children under 5 years of age die each year globally from preventable illnesses. Each year more than 287,000 women, 99 percent of them in developing countries, die from pregnancy and childbirth related complications. These lives can be saved by increasing access to well equipped health care centres with well trained and motivated health care professionals.
Ethnovision works in partnership with State Ministries of Health - working together to build stronger more sustainable and resilient health systems. At the community level we bridge the gap between clinics and remote communities by deploying health workers to bring primary health services to the doorsteps of people living far from care.
Better health is achieved by making patient-centered care the core of how we approach our work. By providing referrals to secondary and tertiary care institutions our patients have continuity of care from household to hospital.
