As a B1G1 Business For Good, Prescript Recruitment embeds giving in our everyday business activities. Each time we place a doctor in regional Australia we also contribute to medical support to the Odede community, Western Kenya.
Situated on the banks of Lake Victoria, the tiny village of Odede is located in the Rarieda district of Nyanza Province. Much of the local population are rural, subsistence farmers living in extreme poverty (less than $2.50 per day). The communities have limited access to basic infrastructure and services such as health and education.
The district is home to some of the highest HIV/AIDS rates in the country, with an estimated one in four people living with HIV (four times the national rate).
Maternal and infant mortality rates are also unacceptably high; an estimated 55 out of every 1000 babies die before their first birthday each year (WHO 2010). Many of these children are dying from malaria and other preventable illnesses like diarrhoea.
