THE RIGHT TO HEALTH
The right to health in Africa is still a privilege for a few. The supply of vaccines makes apparent disparities between the north and south of the world, between developed and poorer countries, and how this economic distance is reflected in the ability of states to provide for the health of their citizens through health systems.
The right to health of its citizens effectively denies them to enjoy a fundamental right.
Governments face numerous challenges, such as the endemic problem of epidemics, poverty, and the shortage of doctors, who increasingly leave the country to seek higher living conditions and salaries abroad. Insufficient spending on health by states does not allow citizens to enjoy decent health care, coupled with the lack of basic infrastructure to provide clean water.
The OMS estimates that Africa has a quarter of global disease cases but can count on just 3% of health workers and less than 1% of the world’s financial resources. Few countries have public health care; a two-tier system often gives the wealthy access to quality care through private health insurance. In contrast, the rest of the population has to be content with overcrowded government facilities.
We provide free medical care for children and people who cannot afford basic medical needs, such as vaccines or medications for common illnesses like malaria. Our healthcare programs are health education, Health Care Emergencies in Medical Supplies, Nutrition Services for Women and Children, and Emergency Food Distribution. WE NEED YOU; WE NEED YOUR HELP FOR THE HEALTH OF OUR PEOPLE.
