Supporting Existing Community Efforts to Achieve Health: Medical Supplies to Yap Memorial Hospital

Problem
Despite its best efforts, the Yap State Department of Health Services is inhibited by limited resources.

What we did to help
In order to help the existing systems that deliver health services to Yap, we have provided donated health supplies. Oceania Community Health wants to work with existing health systems to promote their distribution of health rather than compete and demote the care provided by existing systems. We have been able to deliver needed medical supplies such as a cardiac defibrillator, blood analyzer and assorted medical supplies to Yap Memorial Hospital. These supplies have been generously donated by Queens Medical Center and Wahiawa General Hospital in Hawai’i.

Completed Project Grade: 82%
