Preventing & Managing Disease
Medical Teams International's primary goal in Lebanon is health outreach. Basic health and dental care prevents and reduces the impact of disease on children, women, and men in the settlement. Additionally, we train community volunteers to provide household outreach and education complements ongoing health services at mobile medical units.
There is a major focus on the largely unmet need of chronic and preventable problems e.g. dental, cardiovascular, respiratory, diabetes. Community Health Volunteers monitor chronic disease patients in their homes and provide families and communities with vital information on chronic disease recognition, management and disease prevention.
Additionally, dental care for children provides important developmental care and reduces serious health problems in the future.
