Medical intervention

A fear of hospitals, distance to services and prohibitive costs are often barriers to accessing health care for many Indonesian people. This causes treatable conditions such as heart disease, cancer, epilepsy, burns, bone fractures, and infections to go untreated.

 

Solemen’s Outreach teams identify people in need of medical treatment and assess patients and plan a treatment pathway for them. They refer them to appropriate social and medical services and arrange transportation with a team member as accompanying support.

 

Solemen guide and support their patients throughout the process and follow up with them in between, and after, treatments checking on their wellbeing and ensure they are correctly taking their prescribed medication.
