PHC Initiative Africa
About Our Initiative
Founded 2019, we are a non-governmental organisation disrupting the irregularities in the Nigeria health care system in particular and Africa at large; using simple, innovative and cost-effective strategies by our multi-sectoral approach to primary health care. We strengthen primary health care through shifting focus largely from curative to preventive care in order to strike balance on health equality regardless of one’s socioeconomic status. This is done through advocacy, influencing policies that can transform the health of the people. We reach out to the government and the led; and the community and its people. Here, it is about synergy targeted at ensuring health for all.
PHC Initiative Africa was born out of the dare to ensure the common Nigerian masses can access quality health care services at all times irrespective of location, socio-economic status, and financial capacity. Nigeria which has a population of 206 million and an annual growth rate of 3.2 % is the most populous country in Africa and has been projected to have a population of 406 million by year 2050, making it the third largest population in the world. In view of the above, we’re are doubling our efforts in seeing that everyone has access to quality healthcare services at all times.
In Nigeria like many other developing countries, about 70% of the population live in rural communities. The Nigerian health care has suffered several down-falls. Despite Nigerian’s strategic position in Africa, the country is greatly underserved in the health care sphere. Health facilities (health centers, personnel, and medical equipment) are inadequate in this country, especially in rural areas which houses more than half of the total population. And we are here to bridge the gap by ensuring that Nigerians take charge of their their health first by being acutely aware of the benefits of a healthy life and what it can do to them. Hence, it is everyone’s business to prioritize everyone’s health.
