The aim of our Home Community Based Services program, in partnership with Department of Health, is to provide and promote primary health care services. Primary health care addresses the main health problems in the community, providing promotive, preventive, curative, and rehabilitative services. To achieve this, we provide prevention and early intervention awareness. Our objective is to support and uplift by creating a platform to empower the communities through education, wellness promotion and training.

Through a team of trained Professional Nurses, Enrolled Nurses and Community Health Care Workers, we provide an array of interventions that support the actions people take to maintain health and well-being; prevent illness and accidents; care for minor ailments and long-term conditions; and recover from periods of acute illness and hospitalisation.

Community-orientated primary care is: “A continuous process by which primary health care is provided to a defined community on the basis of its assessed health needs, by the planned integration of primary care practice and public health”.
