3.1 Support to the development of health protection and social services
Healthcare Institution “Brest Regional Pediatric Hospital” (Brest Oblast, Belarus)
Independent Public Health Care Centre in Łosice (Mazowieckie Voivodeship, Poland)
Łosice and its neighbourhood as well as Brest Oblast noticed in recent years a growth in the number of diseases among their citizens, including children, lately. The medical facilities of both areas do not provide sufficient health services since they are facing a problem of outdated medical equipment. Lack of resources for palliative care is another pressing issue there.
The hospitals from Brest and Łosice together decided to create better conditions for their patients. In Brest the modernization of the oxygen supply system together with new accessories and major repairs will be conducted. The Łosice entity will obtain specialistic equipment for the diagnosis of neoplasm and heart diseases, mammographic examination, USG and oxygen unit installation. Additionally, study tours for doctors from both countries will be organized, including workshops with sick children. Trainings and experience-sharing provided within the project are very important elements improving medical services. Another project challenge – children’s palliative care – requires constant supervision in medical institutions and at home. Better quality of such care in hospitals may be achieved by purchase of necessary equipment, palliative beds, and specialized transport car. In both hospitals the “Club of Relatives” will be created as well, supporting the relatives of sick children with psychologists and other specialists. In addition, the project will engage the volunteers assisting palliative care children in both cities. Moreover, the healthy lifestyle promotion campaign will be provided on the project area.
Thanks to the BAMS project implementation the patients including children from Brest and Łosice will receive free access to modern medical services. The project partners will share their experiences in narrow spheres of healthcare, introducing innovations and expanding services. The cooperation is planned to be continued also after the project completion.
