The modular clinic initiative is a robust plan to reposition health care delivery to underserved communities by leveraging existing and culturally accepted institutions. Traditional birth attendance is one of such institutions, which our team now leverages on. The Julia Burke Maternity Centre is an efficient hybrid of our ideals of maternal and infant health practice and culturally accepted traditional birth attendance. We have made good progress with integrating modern conventional maternity practice with a traditional institution.
This initiative is based on five key metrics, the legs of the modular clinic initiative. These metrics keep us in the focus on what we hope to achieve in our modular clinics.
The Five Legs of the GEANCO Modular Clinic Initiative.
Our Progress since late 2020 and January 2021
Our team has begun addressing these legs upon which the initiative is built.
