On the island of Folegandros in Greece, the Limmat Foundation supports financially a project which provides the permanent residents of the island with a health clinic that offers free basic medical care. The well-equipped medical office is staffed by a physician and a nurse practitioner. Without this facility, local islanders would not have access to primary health care and would have to travel to another Greek island or to the mainland for treatment, which is not possible for them due to financial reasons. The clinic’s goal is to provide medical and preventive care services that at least match the average standard of clinics on the mainland and fully meet both the medical and pharmaceutical needs of the residents. This includes the dispensing of low-cost medicines.
