African Community Health Initiative provides health screenings, chronic disease health education, and health maintenance programs for rural villagers in eastern Nigeria where health care is limited.


The people in southeastern Nigeria live in poverty and lack basic amenities such as pipe borne water, electricity, all season roads and most of all medical facilities. People in this area live on less than $2 per day, making it nearly impossible to travel to a hospital or clinic to access health care if needed. Malaria is the most significant health problem facing Nigeria. Life expectancy rates are 48 (male) and 49 (females) years old.


ACHI provides quality health care to rural villages through health screenings, education and maintenance programs for those with chronic and endemic diseases. Free medication is provided and continual monitoring and testing is performed.

Long-Term Impact

Creating awareness for self chronic/endemic disease management through education/maintenance programs will improve health and wellness; a local volunteer nurse is trained to follow up and provide medications; a doctor is available for consultation.

Additional Documentation

This project has provided additional documentation in a Microsoft Word file (projdoc.doc).
