WATAN’s belief in the importance of building a local response for current health needs is based on the idea that sustainable solutions must take into account the unique characteristics and resources of the community they are serving. By focusing on local communities, finance, and capacity, WATAN aims to create solutions that are tailored to the specific needs of the area, and that can be sustained over time without over relying on external support.
Our team is made up of healthcare professionals, including doctors, nurses, and technicians, as well as community outreach workers who are dedicated to helping individuals and families in the community to improve their health and wellness. We work closely with community organizations, schools, and other local partners to ensure that our program is meeting the specific needs of the community we serve.
