Expanding community-led health promotion and access to care for people to attain and maintain good health, and improve their quality of life.
What we are fighting for
A world where preventable diseases no longer create the most disability or highest disease burden in any community and where healthcare is accessible for people wherever they are.
What drives us
Innovations are driving the world, but in most cases, the very people who need the services the most lack the resources to access and benefit from them. We work to adapt Public Health innovations to the local realities of low resource communities so that no one is left behind.
What community members say
It is the first time for us to have health professionals come to the community and tell us about our health. Usually we are the ones who have to go the health center so we only go when we are sick. But now we know what we can do to not get sick and not have to got to the hospital, all thanks to Lafia!― Boureima, Head of household
There are not many resources for young people like me to learn about sexual and reproductive health. Even at school, we don’t talk about it and that has contributed to many of the reproductive health issues we see in young people in the community today. With Lafia, I now have a chance to help find a solution that will benefit me and my peers!― Amelie, University student
We have conducted 921 screenings and tests for hypertension, diabetes, hepatitis B and C, Cervical and breast cancer, and HIV.
Our community health education fairs have directly benefited 866 people from underserved areas.
Our screening campaigns have allowed 119 to access vaccination for Hepatitis B.
