Nar Sarah Clinic
The NarSarah Clinic screens and diagnoses over 4,000 patients per year. As a part of the primary health care program, Peacemaker, the Health Program Officer, and Finah, Midwife and Asst. Health Program Officer disburse medication, provide injections, and perform minor surgeries. They refer more serious cases to a suitable nearby medical center. Peacemaker also coordinates the referral of all fistula patients for further treatment in the town of Bo.
The clinic also offers HIV/AIDS testing, counseling, and sensitization in addition to general community health education on essential topics such as hygiene and disease prevention. After hours, on-call nurses are available for emergency health care services. The work is certainly around the clock, but Peacemaker, Finah and other NarSarah staff are incredibly dedicated to meeting the healthcare needs of the poor in rural Sierra Leone.
In addition to the primary health care clinic and referral services, NarSarah staff provide several other services including: weekly maternal clinic, pre-and post-natal care, family planning and deliveries. The weekly under-five and children’s health care clinic offers immunizations and growth monitoring.
