Ask The Paediatricians Foundation seeks to empower 1 million Nigerian Students each year with knowledge of first aid care for common medical emergencies by giving the students our customized ATP First Aid Care Tips cards and their schools same resource as calendars in classes. This supports the schools with First Aid Care knowledge on what to do to prevent deaths in emergencies. The families of the students will be indirect beneficiaries as students share the First Aid Care messages at home.
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.
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.
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.
