Advancing Health Equity Through Telehealth
Project Launch: 12-16-21
The Mandela Washington Fellows Association of Ghana will use $9,805.56 to construct a Telehealth Consultation Unit at Abusua Community Medical Center in Busunya Community, Nkoranza North District, Bono East Province of Ghana. Medical consultants in the unit will coordinate provision of care to clients who will call into the center. Through partnership with over-the-counter medicines sellers in the community, clients will be receiving prescriptions, education, and drug information for their medications. This unit will help 148,000 people from the community who travel over 75 kilometers to the next town on deplorable roads to see doctors.
