Babymelkpoeder project voor 2019

Ook komend jaar zal, net als vele voorgaande jaren, in het Matata ziekenhuis weer vraag zijn naar babymelkpoeder. Dit poeder is een belangrijke voedingsstof voor veel van de baby's die jaarlijks het Matata ziekenhuis bezoeken.

Hieronder de projectbeschrijving en het budget.

INTRODUCTION


(a) ORGANISATION

Matata Nursing Hospital started its operations in 1992 as a small Community Health Outreach Programme. It is located in Oyugis Town Rachuonyo South District, Homa-Bay County-Kenya; which has approximate population of 260,000 (2009, Government of Kenya census).

The Hospital offers Comprehensive general Out-Patient and In-patient services with the bed capacity 0f 200; with annual average outpatient (OPD) attendance of 36,000 and in-patient of 4,944 (2017 statistics). This population continues to grow as service delivery becomes improved.

The Hospital equally offers comprehensive care and support for those infected with HIV/AIDS and integrated Mother/Child services. It has a board which defines the policies and provides the governance. Under the Board, there is the Hospital Management Team (Committee) headed by the Executive Director. It is the Management Team (Committee) which carries out day to day functions of the Hospital to meet its desired objectives.

The hospital continues to experience the challenges of high in-flow of patients across board. This has been due to improvement of infrastructures as has been supported by the strategic partners. To continue giving the high quality health service delivery, Matata Hospital intends to request for the support of Baby Powdered Milk for the children coming to hospital facilities. The improvement of the maternity services through acquiring these items would ensure comfort of clients and security of their belongings while in the hospital; hence an added value.

(b) MISSION

The Hospital is committed to providing needed integrated quality, compassionate and sustainable services aimed at improving quality level. In Partnership with community, we provide integrated Health care services which amongst are Mother/Child, in house and community mobile outreaches, Outpatient, Inpatient, Laboratory, and Comprehensive HIV/AIDS care and support. We continue to work with the community through the network of our trained CHWs – Community Health Workers, to reach hard to reach areas.

(c) VISION

Hospital of choice within the Homa Bay County providing sustained quality health cares for improved livelihood.

(d) Specific objective:

– To improve the quality of life for the vulnerable and malnourished children who attend hospital institutional MCH/FP/PMCTC+ clinics through the provision of nutritional powdered milk supply.

(e) PROBLEM STATEMENT

The general decline in the quality of health services provision in the public health services is greatly weighing on Matata Hospital resources. More people are now looking for services from Matata, and therefore forcing the hospital to look for extra resources to meet these ever increasing demands.

Though the hospital has continued to do well with the external support in this area, the need continues to grow, and especially in the ending 2018 with the foreseeable deplorable health care situation in Homa Bay County in 2019, the hospital expects to receive increased integrated MCH/FP attendance 6% more than the year 2018. Added to the increased number is the ever increasing taxation system in Kenya.

With improved acceptance on Mother/Child and Maternity services provided by Matata Hospital, where the hospital received 4,458 mother-child related clients services. We expect this number to increase by 3% in 2019. Equally budgetary line would be affected as Kenyan shilling against US$ is on the decline, with high taxation system in Kenya. Further, the previous and ongoing activities of supporting malnourished children has greatly enhance interest of mothers to bring their children to clinics, not leaving out poverty which continues to be with the mothers and community at large where they are unable to provide nutritional quality foods to their children.

(f) IMPACT OF POWDERED MILK

The impact of nutritional milk supply has greatly been realized in relations to improved quality of health for babies who have been consistently supported with milk and the increase in the demand for the MCH/FP/PMCTC services at the facility.

Several mothers come from far and wide to attend the Matata MCH/FP clinics, especially with the sharp decline in the public health care services, forcing the vulnerable mothers to facilities closure to their reach. The impression it creates is that our services have value addition; milk supply to improve on the livelihood of the vulnerable and malnourished children.
