Outreach Health Programs
Community outreach programs is an important vehicle for reducing the discovery-delivery disconnect by bringing health education and Health screening services directly to community members. Such programs are consistent with the priority areas of Trinity Care Foundation initiatives for reducing health disparities.
Outreach programs are important tools for bringing health education and screening services directly to community members and serve to contribute to reducing health disparities.They assist communities and hospitals to reach mutually beneficial goals that would otherwise not be achievable for promoting accessible and equitable care.
Many developers of outreach programs are not aware of their audiences’ literacy level as well as the major cultural norms and boundaries that support or impede community members’ behaviors relating to screening, early detection and prevention.
Thus, meeting the challenge of a strong health disparities agenda in community outreach requires integration of culture and literacy in all phases of intervention, communication and programmatic development.
Community Health Program focusing on the rural poor. A Team of Public health professionals consisting of Physician, Pediatrician, Gynecologist, Ophthalmologist and Dental surgeons visit the rural areas of Bangalore Rural and Kolar District and provide valuable service. Medicines are distributed at free of cost.
The incidence of medical conditions and resultant fatalities in India is higher than in the West, primarily due to the non-availability of pervasive affordable quality advanced healthcare solutions for the poorer segments of the society.
Well aware of this lacuna, Trinity Care Foundation conducts multiple Community Outreach Programs as its commitment and obligation towards the society. The aim of these programs is to redress the imbalance by providing quality advanced healthcare to the deprived and the underprivileged at their doorsteps.
