Enhancing the quality of life of people of developing nations.

Background: The health care situation is very less than satisfactory with a life expectancy at birth of 55 years and a high infantile mortality. Togolese claim that one of the major reasons is the people's inability to afford the cost of drugs and services. Local herbal medications are commonplace because people can't afford modern medication. It takes a person three years of schooling after high school to become a nurse. Most are male and there are often no jobs since people are having a hard time paying, the actual existing health care centers are closing down.

Objective: Facilitate the access to health care; give women opportunities to become nurses

Problem: Health allocations account for only 5.7 % of the national budget. Avoidable infectious and parasitic diseases are the predominant morbidity. Health care facilities are highly insufficient (one-physician for 11,230 inhabitants) and access to health care centers is often a difficult problem. Only 25% of the population in Togo has access to basic health services, despite the country's participation in the Bamako Initiative of community management and financing of health facilities.

The NFGCD interventions:

  • Open additional clinics and health centers
  • Carry out surveys on health to be more effective on providing access to medications and know where to build the new health centers
  • Enhance social progress
  • Increase agriculture productivity
  • Enhance population awareness and understanding towards health and possible treatments
  • Increase ratio of female employed in health sector
  • Augment number of birth performed by skilled staff
