Some Recent Project
ASDHI works to expand family planning programs expecting it to impact on some of the challenges associated with child mortality.
ASDHI believes that the majority of child deaths can be prevented by low-tech, evidence-based, cost-effective measures such as vaccines, antibiotics, micronutrient supplementation, insecticide-treated bed nets and improved family care and breastfeeding practices.
ASDHI works to expand family planning programs expecting it to impact on some of the challenges associated with child mortality. By increasing access to use of family planning, ASDHI hopes for reduction of costs associated with achieving other MDG targets including drops in maternal and child mortality.
ASDHI supports Government to address challenges in HIV/AIDS services implementation, by focusing on: human resource capacity, weak health infrastructure, insufficient mainstreaming, transportation and general systems, issues of ownership and empowerment, low utilization of antenatal and PMTCT services by pregnant women, lack of prevention targeting population-at-risk. Friends Forever is scaling up efforts to support Government’s effort to remedy some of the challenges.
MOH (2008) reported that in 2005-06, malaria was the leading cause of morbidity and mortality in the country.
ASDHI contributes to disseminating malaria knowledge, and the provision and use of insecticide treated nets.
We work to increase education and knowledge of Malaria, believing that General malaria education is an essential tool for preempting outbreaks of malaria epidemics.
We also focus more on pregnant women and children, who are more susceptible to malaria.
We work in communities to turn around, low IRS coverage, weak environmental management for vector control, and low usage of ITNs by households (utilization rate as opposed to ownership) and treating of persons with negative tests, without adhering to rapid diagnostic tests.
As regards Tuberculosis, ASDHI works to increase Case Detection Rates (CDR) through training of staff; coordination of other CBOs/NGOs; improving access, coverage and utilization of DOTS services.
Organizations like ours have a major role to play in establishing referral links to emergency obstetric and newborn care, helping communities to overcome economic and social-cultural barriers that inhibit women and their newborns from accessing high-quality care. As such Achieving Sustainable Development and Health Initiative (ASDHI) work on the following high Impact MNCH Intervention Areas:
