Emergency healthcare services are sorely lacking in rural areas and serious cases that require medical attention usually do not get help in time due to the distance of the rural settlements from the healthcare centers.
At BKF, our aim is a healthier population supported by high-quality healthcare that can be equitably accessed. Here, we learn what works to make people’s lives healthier and improve the healthcare system because we know that providing adequate healthcare services to indigenes will result in a flourishing society. Primary healthcare centers have been set up through the influence of Benjamin Kalu Foundation, which is still inadequate to meet the needs of the people in these communities. In collaboration with international NGOs and our partners, we plan to construct primary healthcare centers every 20km in the rural areas to ensure accessibility and closer proximity of quality medical services to the people.
