The region of East-Africa, multi-dimensional political unrest, lack of knowledge, the weak economy and prolong of droughts have all contributed to the current worsening of the environmental conditions and the implications for public health.
The present situation regarding public and environmental health, arising from inadequate water supply absence of waste management, poor sanitation, and unsanitary living conditions appear to be applicable across East-Africa
Given that public health problems in the East-Africa are mainly infectious diseases due to inadequate disease management and control, poor sanitation and lack of sanitary living conditions. There is an urgent need for immediate and effective interventions to scale up, contain and control some of the health problems and to introduce new initiatives, policies and guidance for better water supply and waste management and control systems in urban and rural areas.
HEPTO will intervene about this issue by reaching out all stakeholders to tackle down these environmental destruction.
Hepto will educate and orient the communities with clear message and language they can understand. There is no middle man between HEPTO and the communities it serves, no loop-holes, no corruption; therefore its interventions will reach targeted communities without delay or interruptions.
One of our fundamental roles is to direct and coordinate healthcare education and training by promoting collaboration, mobilizing partnerships and stimulating efforts of different actors to respond to the need for healthcare education.
Not only by the book but by the practical life, HEPTO understands that protecting and regenerating environment, by reforestation is vital to those communities. Prolonged drought and erosion are the results of environmental misuse. Reforestation may reverse environmental damages. HEPTO has an in-depth plan for environmental care.
