About IPROSARUDE

Why IPROSARUDE ?

According to the unequal access to health care services in urban and rural areas (in dental care services the country had almost 10 dental clinics and most of them are working in capital city, about ophthalmology 80% of ophthalmogists and 75% of eye facilities were in urban areas).

Then a group of medical providers has set up the NGO called IPROSARUDE (initiative for promotion of rural health and development) in order to increase the access to healthcare in rural areas.
