Challenge

Nigeria currently has the highest child mortality in the world with more than a million children dying each year before their fifth birthday. Most of these deaths are due to largely preventable and treatable causes. Yet many children are dying due to underlying prevalent factors of poverty, ignorance and lack of access to prompt and standard health care services. The solutions to these problems have been proposed for many years via the child survival strategies, one of which is health education.

Solution

Ask The Paediatricians Foundation seeks to address the ignorance factor by providing health education and information for parents via our online platforms. With this project, we are seeking to empower the students who are future leaders by catching them young and given them reminder cards that they can use to remember first aid care to administer in their communities. We also believe they will take these messages home to their families. With time, ignorance of first aid will reduce in Nigeria.

Long-Term Impact

We seek to empower 5 million secondary school students over 5 years with First aid care online training and Reminder cards. We will also empower 30,000 secondary schools with 30,000 first aid boxes and 100,000 first aid care tips calendars for the teachers. With this training and resource materials in the school communities over 5 years all Nigerian students in secondary schools will have basic first aid care knowledge and this will reduce significantly preventable deaths of children in Nigeria.
