Posted by on Sep 19, 2016 in Events, Partners, Recent News | 0 comments

SCH’s Community Health Workers (CHWs) met today to discuss the Every Second Matters – Streptokinase (ESM-STK) Project. Dr. Mark Stoltenberg, a Global Health Fellow from MGH, discussed with the CHWs about the symptoms of a heart attack. Sagam Community Hospital now has Streptokinase, a drug to treat heart attacks, electrocardiogram machines to diagnose heart attacks and has trained clinicians and nurses who are prepared to take care of these patients. Streptokinase is a life-saving drug that can greatly increase a patient’s chance of survival and improve a patient’s quality of life after having a heart attack. The CHWs are now armed with the knowledge to inform the public on the symptoms and have also received posters translated in dholuo and kiswahili to help spread the message to the public. SCH’s community outreach programme is part of the hospital’s mission to provide accessible and affordable care to our community. The outreach programme is implemented weekly and the next outreach will take place this Wednesday, September 21, 2016 at Luanda...
