Patrick, a co-founder, visited Neri Clinics at the end of May. He was delighted to be able to meet all those who work at the clinic face to face after a long two-year absence due to Covid-19. He was delighted to join staff as they set off on their community door-to-door covid vaccination campaign.
Patrick caught up with all the latest goings-on at the clinic and reported back that life there is very busy and tremendous work is ongoing in the various services offered at the clinic. He was delighted to announce the addition of staff at Neri and advance the proposed commencement of on-site ultrasound scanning. He also discussed with staff and later the district health management team’s shared enthusiasm for the development of services at Neri.
He sat in on some of the morning meetings of the growing CHW (community health workers) network (pictured below) before they went on their outreach work. This brilliant group is busy providing the valuable Nutrition program and paediatric epilepsy programmes.
The clinics were also delighted to receive some much-needed equipment that will improve the quality of life for their patients. The nebulizers will help in the fight against life-threatening asthma attacks.
Ronan Flynn (GP and the other co-founder of Neri Clinics) recently reported that the district health management team attended for preliminary review in the run-up to certifying Neri Clinics as an official government dispensary of anti-retroviral therapy. This means that patients with HIV will be able to receive full HIV care at Neri Clinics in the near future. Great news!
