Community Health

Community Health



In many communities around the world, health systems are under pressure and medical facilities are difficult to access. Empower locally-based health workers to reach vulnerable communities with life-giving care and services.

How your gift helps

For this rural community in South Sudan, getting sick once cost you more than your health. Some families had to sell livestock or produce to afford medicine or a visit to the distant clinic. But thanks to Tearfund’s Christian partner ACROSS, life-giving health care and services are now within reach. As well as establishing a local health clinic, ACROSS supports community health workers who conduct outreach sessions, immunising children and providing mosquito nets, and bringing health education alongside messages about issues like gender-based violence.
