It can be a massive challenge for small, rural, local hospitals and clinics to afford and acquire medical supplies or quality medicine. It is even harder for people in rural communities to afford those medicines. Leadership Initiatives is trying to tackle these challenges in two ways by buying medicine in bulk and subsidizing care for people in need.
We identify small clinics in Nigeria with a majority of patients living in extreme poverty. It is these types of clinics that see people dying from the most preventable diseases.
We work directly with clinics to help them purchase medicine and supplies in bulk. This drastically lowers the cost of each treatment and allows the doctors to provided prescriptions and hope for those living on less than $1.90 a day.
Provide health education on disease prevention, basic hygiene and handwashing instruction, malaria awareness, signs and symptoms of typhoid, and treatments for diarrhea and dehydration.
We pay for the diagnoses and treatment of patients in the most need at our sponsored clinics. These patients work directly with our doctors and students and receive all tests and prescriptions at no cost.
Health matters, and in vulnerable communities, good health is a form of currency. Without it, you cannot pursue education, employment, or civic engagement.
MAKE HEALTHCARE ACESSIBLE
Ensure that even those who cannot afford services are able to receive medical attention and have a chance to return healthy to their communities and continue to build positive change.
MEDICINES SAVES LIVES
We are able to work with partners to ship medicine and supplies sourced at a discount and work with local hospitals to continue providing much-needed quality healthcare in rural, impoverished communities.
SMALL HOSPITAL CANNOT AFFORD SUPPLIES
We focus on the numbers. We want our hospitals and clinics to treat those in need. Our facilities track the number of patients treated and the amount each patient is charged for services.
To ensure that people are receiving the best care, we visit our hospital and clinics monthly. During these visit we review medical invintory, meet with hospital staff, and interview past patients.
On average, patient attendance at our partner hospitals has increased by 20% and hundreds of patients have recieved life-saving treatment at no cost to them.
