This program ensures that the low income members of society particularly children aged 0-12 have access to basic healthcare, not more than N30,000. This is achieved by settling their bills after thorough verification. Having partnered with over 39 public hospitals, we have done about 700 cases, with a projection to help 65,000 indigents patients in the next 4 years.
One of the realities that life presents is that the rich have better access to health care system, whereas the poor struggle to access basic health care to stay alive. In a socio-economy like Nigeria, the financially less capable are subject to inadequate provision of basic healthcare. As a result of financial constraints, the poor can’t afford the best of the medicines, hence there is a compromise when medication is prescribed to them and they buy less cheap and less effective drugs that might further endanger their health.
For instance, an indigent patient that earns less than N500 per day with a family of five to support won’t be able to afford adequate treatment for certain medical conditions or he/she may not be able to afford vaccines for their children against preventable diseases
Presently, HEI dedicates ‘Project 1 Million’ to provide more medical interventions by providing swift financial assistance to indigent/vulnerable patients in emergency situations in public health institutions. You are welcome to Support HEI Project 1 Million in the pursuit of saving more lives THAT NONE SHOULD DIE.
Due to lack of funds, the poor often disregard medical conditions like Sepsis, Jaundice, Malaria, Pneumonia and even Malnutrition at their early stages and this further endanger the poor patient’s life.
Health Emergency Initiative (HEI) is a non-profit humanitarian mission that faithfully works to prevent needless deaths via our lifesaving programs. We commit to providing medical interventions to indigent and vulnerable patients in public hospitals.
