Rx Healthy Solutions
Cents of Relief's Rx Healthy Solutions increases access to healthcare for women in prostitution and their children.
Cents of Relief is providing health kits filled with medications, First Aid, and hygiene supplies to women in prostitution. The women return once a month for refill of supplies without fail. This demonstrates a commitment on their part and recognition that they now know their health is important. This upcoming year we hope to continue increasing the number of women participating in this program by increasing the number of community kits provided.
Health Check-Ups/Clinic Consultations:
Cents of Relief is providing women in prostitution and their children regular clinical check-ups and referral visits if necessary. Counseling and rehabilitation from chronic alcohol and drug use are available for those willing to participate in these services. To make these programs sustainable and require less funding, we are investing in training staff to become community health volunteers. We hope this will help reduce STDs and urinary tract infections among women, while helping them abstain from alcohol and drugs. This upcoming year we hope to permit more women clinical check-ups and permit their children access to similar check-ups. To this end, we will need to hire a pediatrician who can come to the shelter two times per week.
