Community Healthcare Programme

HOPE, along with our partner NGOs, began the implementation of our Community Healthcare Programme in 2007. The programme was divided into 3 phases.

Phase I – Initiation (2007-2011), the major objectives included the provision of accessible and equitable healthcare clinics, improved health awareness, and improved access to water and sanitation facilities.

Phase II – Consolidation and Sustainability (2011-2015), the objectives were to generate awareness among slum communities on environmental, social and health issues and government schemes, empowering communities to take action to improve their living condition, facilitating access to government schemes and services and reduce the financial burden of accessing healthcare, supporting communities and partner organizations to develop an advocacy strategy; including accountability measures, aimed at improving the accessibility and quality of government schemes and services.

Phase III – Phase Out and Community Empowerment (2015-2017), the final phase of the project aims to empower 35 slums to become self-reliant and slowly phase out of the intervention areas. In this phase, community health and environment volunteers began taking initiatives on their own to address the existing issues in their communities where they themselves will continue following and implementing the core structures of awareness, action, access and advocacy.
