The dire health crisis in southeast Nigeria is driven in part by scarcity of doctors, the incessant brain drains of available clinicians, affecting Nigeria in general, fueling the inadequate access to quality healthcare for those in rural and hard-to-reach communities, including our families and friends.
However, with decades of healthcare experience and passion for humanity, we are on a mission to create a healthier and safer community, by facilitating citizens’ access to quality healthcare services from their homes, enabling them to save- TIME, MONEY, LIVES and SAFE from the security risks facing the region.
Majority if not all the indigens located in the rural areas walk miles on end or travel distances from 1 to 2 hours to get the healthcare service they need (if they are able to afford transportation fees) most being women and children.
Who will benefit from our telehealth project?
- The poor with no visible means of sustained livelihood, the single unemployed, the homeless vulnerable families, and the social deviants who subsist precariously on the edge of the society. These people have no access to affordable healthcare and when they do, travel for hours to get the medical care they deserve. Their livelihood who depends on humanitarian allies for their income.
- The special needs population like the drug and alcohol abusers and prisoners. This population will benefit from Telemedicine services to help them attain basic/sufficient standard of wellbeing.
- Schools in rural areas: elementary, secondary and universities where unforeseen events can occur.
