Summary

Make healthcare accessible to cancer and maternal health indigent members of our various communities in Anambra State -Nigeria, who cannot pay for the care they need in a country with under-resourced healthcare system.

Challenge

In 2018 alone, there were about 116,000 new cases of cancer in Nigeria and over 70,000 deaths. Many patients cannot afford the costs and they often abandon hospital tests and treatments. One study estimated that at least 72% of breast cancer patients in Nigeria pay out-of-pocket for their treatment. Only about 2.4% of Anambra residents were covered by health insurance in 2018, because many residents were not able to pay and enroll into the State's own health insurance scheme and had no access.

Solution

ASA Women USA Cancer Coalition, Community Adoption Partnership Program will cover the health insurance premium of the adopted indigent members of our various communities in the State's Health Insurance scheme for a sustainable and cost-effective means to accessing quality and affordable health services from the State's accredited public, mission and private hospitals across Anambra State-Nigeria and also support the expansion of a community's Health Center into a Cancer diagnostic Centre.

Long-Term Impact

ASA Women USA Cancer Coalition, Community Adoption Partnership Program will enable the indigent members to easily access healthcare, be healthier, reduce avoidable deaths and this will promote economic productivity in the State and the Nation at Large. Our goal is to enroll 100 indigent members a year for 5 years in the State's Health Insurance Scheme, while supporting the expansion of the community's health center into a cancer treatment/ diagnostic Centre in Anambra State-Nigeria
