Health Camps and Training

ATA provides health education as a means to emplacing local skills and abilities to diagnose and treat common illness's and to dress and protect wounds and cuts.

In addition, skills in recognising when external assistance is required ensures that our trainees are able to adequately assess the degree and severity of each situation. In addition we run training for women to work as barefoot TBA (Traditional Birth Assistants) in their communities.

We have had particular success in Nepal with health camps for local communities, where local people are able to obtain surgical treatments for cataracts and cleft palettes.
