Emerging and Re-Emerging diseases
Instances of Emerging and reemerging diseases are increasing at a faster rate in Africa due to rapid population growth, environmental changes, and lack of basic knowledge about treatment and prevention. Neglected tropical infectious diseases have historically lacked adequate attention in international public health efforts, leading to insufficient prevention, education, promotion, treatment options and re-evaluation.
HEPTO reaches out those communities and establishes proper training and provides equipment and supplies essential for prevention and managing those devastating diseases.
Hepto established a robust operational chain of care, which enables the health services to reach the smallest and remotest village in East Africa. Hepto National offices directs and manages the operation needed, regional Office extends and assures the care services reaches the community care centers/clinics. Each community care center/clinic serves 20 to 30 villages and every 3 to 5 villages there is a front line care worker. The services and training reach the remotest are in the country. This method will reduce and eventually eliminates the sufferings.
Periodically, Aid agencies visit a few areas to evaluate the prevalence of disease outbreak. people come from miles and miles hoping to find medical help. Unfortunately, the situation never gets better. HEPTO has a better and permanent solution for this problem, by training healthcare professionals from these communities to provide services and prevent health disaster.
Lack of clean drinkable water, unkempt environment, and lack of basic health knowledge led to this catastrophic loss of lives in Africa. This is one of the main reasons that HEPTO was formed.
This picture is the current water source in many areas in East Africa. It is one of the sources of a disease outbreaks.
