Summary

About 70% of Nigerians living in rural communities in the Niger Delta region do so with little or no access to basic healthcare services. Unfortunately, this population is mostly made up of women and children. The level of literacy and awareness as to their health status in these communities is very low and this desires urgent serious attention. In cases where some degree of awareness is present, women in such communities usually undertake to travel distances to access healthcare services.

Challenge

About 70% of Nigerians living in rural communities in the Niger Delta region do so with little or no access to basic healthcare services. Unfortunately, this population is mostly made up of women and children. The level of literacy and awareness as to their health status in these communities is very low and this desires urgent serious attention. In cases where some degree of awareness is present, women in such communities usually undertake to travel distances to access healthcare services.

Solution

To address this situation and to make accessibility to healthcare services readily within reach, this project would seek to provide the missing link in basic healthcare services by establishing routine mobile healthcare camps in communities. This arrangement would enable OCAFO to reach to well above 500,000 women, children, the aged and the youths beside men in communities spread across the entire Niger Delta region by adopting a workable cluster system.

Long-Term Impact

This project is designed to be implemented within 10 (ten) years and continues thereafter, and within this period OCAFO will have assisted well over 500,000 beneficiaries for a steady healthcare services free of charge. OCAFO will through this program, set up healthcare facility centres to cater for the health of the people in the rural riverine areas and hard-to-reach communities of the Niger Delta of Nigeria
