Celebrating Our Brand New Triage Program

Celebrating the launch of the triage program at Vera Cruz Community Health Centre.

It is so good to be able to upskill and coach local staff in this area.

It ensures assessment of sick people is not delayed, children with malnutrition are not missed and possible TB patients are isolated so as not to put others at risk.

Plus, for the usual outpatients, they get a smoother more thorough and professional service.
