The Association of Sierra Leonean Health Professionals in The US has been gearing itself to fight disease in all community levels. We concentrate our efforts on:
TASHPUS hopes to reduce deaths from easily preventable and treatable diseases such as HIV/AIDS, TB, Malaria and water-related conditions such as diarrhea, cholera and trachoma, by educating communities about prevention and bringing good quality and affordable treatment closer to people’s homes. The need is urgent.
TASHPUS shall take an integrated community-based approach to managing diseases, as any treatment must be accompanied by education programs to prevent the spread of disease to those not yet infected, measures to ensure that patients follow treatment plans and adequate health staff to diagnose disease and administer and monitor treatment.
While we hope to combat the biggest killers in Africa, we do not do this in isolation. In all of our work we shall strengthen the capacity of communities and health systems to help improve effectiveness in dealing with all areas of health care and services.
