Challenge

There are 10,150 poor households in Tan Phu district, and the majority of immigrants account for 23.60 percent. The average income they earned in Tan Phu District is 1320 USD/person/year. This is quite a low rate comparing with the average income in Ho Chi Minh City - 4180 USD/person/year. Although they have tried hard to earn money for living and supporting their families, they still cannot afford the amount of money for health care. The project will support 300 immigrant women in difficulty.

Solution

The project will collect information and provide free 300 health insurance cards (HIC) for immigrant women in difficult circumstances in order to give them a chance to access to health services. After that, the project will invite specialist doctors to workshops and consult about health for 300 immigrant women in difficult circumstances.

Long-Term Impact

300 immigrant women participating in the project will have an access to quality health care services which will help them to improve their current health situations. In addition, the awareness of 300 immigrant women about how to acknowledge and prevent common diseases in women will be increased via 3 workshops of health communication and consultancy.

Additional Documentation

This project has provided additional documentation in a PDF file (projdoc.pdf).
