Unhindered Healthcare in Rural Communities

The critical components of sustained health care administration is hinged on the ability of the people to assess health care facilities easily and comfortably, availability of drugs and medical equipment for diagnosis and treatment of varying degrees of ailments, qualified and committed medical personnel to man the available health facilities and coordinated political will by government agencies and relevant stakeholders. These recognized facts will continue to pose great challenges to health care administration especially in rural settings and difficult terrains that lack basis amenities such as good roads, water, health centers etc. RAHI Medical Outreach with a vision of qualitative healthcare intervention, backed by a team of medical personnel and dedicated volunteers, recognizes the importance of healthcare in developing nations; a ready tool for the advancement of any nation. It has overtime, set in motion mitigation mechanisms to address the challenges associated with communities ravaged by natural and man-made disasters. Mitigation efforts employed by RAHI Medical Outreach in the past, as seen during flood disasters in communities, rehabilitation of Internally Displaced Persons arising from military invasion in some parts of Niger Delta and the organization of workshops/symposia in partnership with stakeholders, have all played strategic roles in drawing government’s attention to better healthcare indices and the quest towards attaining Universal Health Coverage in developing nations. As part of the organization’s Universal Health Coverage initiative and recognizing the importance of health care and sound health status among people of diverse origin and tribes, the organization as a foremost healthcare provider and interventionist group, maintains a robust feedback mechanism between communities where its impact has been felt by either through its free medical missions, rehabilitation/reintegration of IDPs and capacity building workshops.
