MyAnimal,MyHealth is partnering with Home and Street Kids Initiative to establish, promote and implement NaiHealth in target communities accross Nigeria
NaiHealth is a health solution which promotes micro-health insurance and low-cost health products and services in disadvantaged communities.
The solution includes active on-site and online recruitment to micro-health insurance platform, connection of target communities to nearby hospitals and health centers, and provision of relevant health-care products and services. Through this, NaiHealth promotes affordable healthcare through Universal Health Coverage (UHC) in Nigeria and access to affordable health solutions for all including maternal, child the disabled. Also, NaiHealth will help to improve health-seeking behaviors and achieve holistic health promotion in target communities.
NaiHealth addresses the problem of limited access to quality healthcare due to socioeconomic hardships in underprivileged populations. According to World Poverty Clock, 44.4% of Nigeria’s population (88.2million people) live in poverty. These poverty-stricken communities include slums, street people, nomadic settlements, refugees and illegal immigrants from neighboring countries. Most of them typically resort to begging and less than menial activities with their children to survive. Therefore, due to their economic disadvantage and poor living conditions, they are often exposed to and affected by extreme health conditions and diseases but find it very difficult to pay for quality health services on demand. So, the solution that NaiHealth provides in connecting such communities to low-cost, affordable and quality healthcare services and products is meeting an important need towards their health and well-being
