We envision an Afghanistan where education is abundant and accessible to all.
HEEDA will deploy advances in tele-education and tele-health to provide varying types of information and educational material to the people of Afghanistan.
Our first Education program began in February 2016. We set up educational videos in the hospital waiting areas at 5 hospitals in Kabul which run 24 hours a day. We provide public health information to patients and their families The educational videos for example help promote hygiene and health awareness. Creating such vessels of information is profoundly effective as hospital and clinic wait times in Afghanistan do not only span hours, but sometimes days.
HEEDA believes that providing important information regarding everything from preventive health measures to cancer awareness can create a sense of empowerment and advocacy for patients. Often the information gained in these videos helps patients to understand how they can better ask questions, take control of their health and keep the health systems they frequent patient-centric.
We want to empower the people of Afghanistan through highly effective and scalable solutions for education. Stay tuned for an update of our first HEEDA curated video on the health implications of Menses and on Breast Cancer Awareness.
