What They Do
Based on today's best practice Modern Medicine, RMF utilizes a Comprehensive Integrative Health Care Model. Once survival and immediate health care needs are addressed, they establish mobile and stationary health clinics employing regional staff and tailoring them to local needs. Using these clinics as hubs, they implement additional modules of care that address the priority needs of the region being served.
Programs such as Maternal Child Healthcare, Malnutrition Eradication, HIV/AIDS Care, Malaria Treatment and Prevention, and Microfinance and Livelihood projects are introduced to build on the existing infrastructure already in place. These programs, addressing some of the developing world's most important issues, such as Maternal and Infant Mortality, Malaria, HIV/AIDS and Malnutrition are part of Real Medicine's commitment to treating the whole person.
By staying for the longer term and by working with local staff and resources, we ensure long term sustainability, local ownership and health care capacity building. At home in the US, Real Medicine Foundation conducts healthcare and education outreach programs, and has provided aid to Hurricane Katrina survivors.
