Community Health Projects (MEX354)

As part of the training of the third-year medical students in the subjed Health and Diseases in Populations, the Faculty of Health Sciences allocate groups of students to a variety of Non-Government Organisations (NGOs) in the Bloemfontein environment. The students do a needs assessment of what the specific organisation needs and then try to meet the needs (medical and non-medical). The living and working conditions of a society largely determine the health of that community. The students try to meet the needs of the NGOs primarily through fundraising projects.

The following are some of the projects where the students were involved in:
