Estimating Health Risks at Project Restauración

Health programming at all FIMRC project sites is community based, and Project Restauración is no different. We have found that taking the community's needs into consideration before a program is implemented is an important step in ensuring positive changes in health conditions in the communities we serve. In 2013, Program Manager Joe South led the efforts to conduct a community diagnostic aimed at better identifying the needs in Restauración and the surrounding communities. Based on the results from Joe's community diagnostic, we have tailored programming at Restauración to address the specific health issues through initiatives such as the Diabetic Program, health education groups targeting hygiene, and dental campaigns.
