Summary

Poverty, disease outbreaks, malnutrition and displacements threaten the lives of poor farmers in Nigeria cut-out from access to healthcare services. Ohaha Family Foundation will provide free mobile healthcare clinics to isolated communities in Nigeria. The objective is to provide healing and restore self-worth particularly to vulnerable population of women and children who are the most affected in these communities, reduce deaths from preventable and treatable diseases and improve livelihood.

Challenge

Sanga LGA currently has one (1) functional Primary Health Centre (PHC) in Gwantu, which is over utilized, understaffed, lacks functional resources to meet the overwhelming human population which results in loss of lives, loss of productive time due to time wastage to make the treacherous 2 hours journey by foot to the PHC. This contributes enormously to high mortality rates from preventable and treatable diseases in Nigeria.

Solution

Our solution is through setting up of mobile healthcare clinics to provide primary healthcare services i.e. free medical consultation & treatment for health concerns such as Malaria, typhoid, worms, colds, back and headaches, follow-up care for conditions like diabetes, high blood pressure and high cholesterol, using Rapid Diagnostic Test kits for basic blood test, administer vaccines to 'un-reached' population and also leverage the use of Mobile Phone Technology to expand healthcare services.

Long-Term Impact

This project will lead to healthier families, decrease mortality rates, and increased productivity, so that in the first 12 months of program implementation, over 50% of the 151,485 population beneficiaries will be recorded directly covering 13,000 households. The mobile healthcare clinics will operate 3 days weekly reaching an estimated 1,500 pa medical hub. Community healthcare workers will be trained to ensure man power availability all year round.
