We catch up with Health Worker Adelina Swai – 07th August 2013

Posted in: News, by Bridge2Aid Team, on 10th October 2013 | 0 comments

Towards the end of 2012 we introduced our Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) programme during DVP. The data gathered for M&E allows us to understand the issues faced by the patents living without access to dental care, as well as follow the successful Health Workers’ journeys and impact after participating in our Dental Training Programmes.

7Last month we caught up with Adelina Swai, who successfully completed our dental training programme in November 2012.
Adelina has been a Health Worker for 2.5 years and provides a health service for her community of over 10,000 people in Nyakabo, Tanzania. Having previously referred many patients with toothache, Adelina was thrilled to inform the Bridge2Aid team that since completing our training programme, she had treated 52 patients suffering with dental pain and safely carried out 43 extractions, without one single referral!
Adelina thanks the volunteer dentists and nurses: “I am very thankful to Bridge2Aid. The volunteer dentists and nurses have provided me with a lifelong skill, and both myself and my patients are very, very grateful”.
We look forward to revisiting Adelina this November, one year after we met her during the training programme.
