NNHF sets out to enable life-changing improvements to care in the developing world, through a grass-roots approach, tailoring NNHF projects to local realities and working together with local partners. From these, the likelihood of improved care increases. At the centre of our approach to sustainable impact creation are our three focus areas:
Comprehensive training of healthcare professionals through lectures, workshops and/or manuals. Creation and implementation of national treatment guidelines, educational material and other relevant tools.
Diagnosis and registry
Improvement of laboratory facilities and skills of staff in performing diagnosis programmes, focus on establishment of quality assurance processes; establishment or updating of registries.
Education and empowerment
Educational initiatives for patients and their families, to support their ability to cope; media and awareness campaigns among community leaders, authorities and general society to improve public support and reach out to remote areas.
