Utilizing the successful model of Treatment + Education + Prevention achieved at AHC, Friends will also implement outreach programs to teach children and families health promotion and disease prevention.
Friends Without A Border is currently conducting a baseline medical survey. A team will visit villages in the Luang Prabang Province to meet with families and gain a better understanding of the health needs of the children in the area. The survey will help ensure the doctors and nurses of LFHC are providing the best care possible.
