HealthLine Foundation is engaged in a massive healthcare project in Nigeria, which calls for everyone’s support and engagement.
In concert with and under the auspices of the MOU singed between the Foundation and the Nigeria Federal Ministry of Health, the Foundation staff and volunteers are charged to improve maternal and infant healthcare services in Nigeria equitably and intervene on high impact maternal, newborn and child health challenges through extended partnership with state governments.
Initially and as a pilot effort the Ministry of Health has identified 11 Nigerian states for the Foundation to initiate its efforts. The States are: Adamawa, Bauchi, Bayelsa, Ebonyi, Enugu, Imo, Kano, Kwara, Ogun, Taraba, and Zamfara.
In this effort the Foundation is utilizing its well defined and structured HealthLine Maternal and Infant Care Program (HMIC Program) which is designed as a partnership program to scale up maternal and infant mortality reduction efforts, improve maternal and child health, address extreme poverty, empower women of child bearing age, and accelerate the pace towards achieving the United Nations’ Millennium Development Goals (MDG) 1, 3, 4, 5 and 6 by 2015.
This is a massive project that requires great amount of education and re-education of all sectors, as well as bringing in the needed resources to make it a long-term success for the eleven project States and ultimately all of Nigeria and hopefully serve as a prototype for the rest of Africa.
The technical paper of the Nigeria Project HEALTH is attached and you are welcomed to review and study it.
The Nigeria Project: HEALTH requires a massive support both in professional and volunteer commitments, as well as financial support to support all the collateral programs to make the Project a success.
We encourage you to study the PDF Technical Paper, there you will see how each sector of the Project supports the other to assure long-term success and establish a change in the communities’ and the nation’s understanding of infant and maternal mortality and fully comprehend and adopt the public healthcare intervention issues as they relate to each mother and child.
At the Foundation we are honored by having been assigned this Project and ask all who Care for Life and wish to be a part of this important undertaking to contact us and personally assist in our mutual efforts.
We look forward to your support – please contact us at:
