The countries of the African horn face significant challenges in the field of health. Approximately 60% of children under the age of five die, and one out of every 20 women between the ages of 15 and 49 die due to pregnancy and childbirth complications. These deaths can be prevented by supporting the healthcare sector in the region through implementing primary healthcare projects and training nurses and midwives.
The Africa Relief Committee (ARC) implements various health programs, especially in remote areas, through conducting medical campaigns in primary healthcare, Cataract operations, and minor surgeries. The Africa Relief Committee (ARC) also implements several training and capacity-building programs in the medical field.
