UNIVERSAL HEALTH COVERAGE ADVOCACY CAMPAIGNS

“Universal Health Coverage means all individuals and communities can afford and access quality healthcare services” (WHO).

We work to promote health and support the United Nation’s agenda on Universal Health Coverage (UHC) by providing affordable and sustainable access to high-quality healthcare services and products to underserved communities in developing countries in Africa, engaging in advocacy campaigns, grass-root mobilization and creating awareness of UHC and its benefits through various formal and informal channels.

OUR PLANS

We joined the global health community to Commemorate the UHC Day through the following activities.

A key highlight of CeSAHA’s UHC2020 day campaign is the dissemination workshop which took place virtually. We presented the report of findings from ARORO PHC Needs Assessment/Gap Analysis carried out during the last quarter of the year.

“Do the right project”: Needs Assessment in action. In Nigeria and in many parts of Africa, more than 80% of the Primary Healthcare facilities which should be the foundation of any nation’s health system are dysfunctional and in insalubrious state. Majority have no financial protection and often have to pay for healthcare services of doubtful quality at point of care. The COVID-19 pandemic has further worsened an already bad situation. It is against this background that Centre for Sustainable Access to Health in Africa (CeSAHA), in line with its mission and vision and as part of its “ADOPT A PHC Programme” (ADOPH) decided to adopt ARORO Primary Healthcare Centre (PHC) in Oyo State.

The overarching goal of the ADOPH initiative is to support the Oyo State Government and other key stakeholders in their current efforts aimed at improving the Quality of Life, promote well being of the people and improve population health through provision of high quality and essential basic health services for ALL. A fully functional PHC holds the key to building resilient and productive communities. A functional PHC IS CRITICAL TO ACHIEVING HEALTHCARE FOR ALL.

  • Created content (fliers, video) alongside using the toolkit provided to enlighten people about universal health coverage via our social media platforms.
  • Finally, we joined the 24-hour virtual rally on Saturday, 12th Dec 2020.
