Mwada-Gana Foundation is collaborating with the Women’s Refugee Commission and Borno State Primary Health Care Development Agency in implementing a Village Health Worker Project (VHW) aimed at increasing access to Reproductive Maternal Newborn Child Adolescent Health and Nutrition services (RMNCAH-N). The overall goal is to improve family health, facility utilization and increase access to RMNCAH-N.
Mwada-Gana Foundation has also worked on the integration of community management of childhood illnesses (ICCM). Bringing treatment for childhood illnesses closer to home is a cornerstone to reduction of under 5 mortality. Facility based case management of childhood illness alone do not provide adequate access to treatment for children in remote area and or humanitarian setting.
ICCM bridges the gap between access to care and initiating treatment for children.
In a span of months MGF treated and provided access to health care for 2000 children under 5 years old from poor and disadvantaged backgrounds affected by the current humanitarian setting in three affected local government areas, Maiduguri, Jere and Konduga, of Borno State.
