EHA Clinics gets $25,000 grant to provide healthcare for Nigerians

EHA Clinics has announced that it has been awarded a grant of $25,000 to help provide health care for Nigerians.

The clinic through its Reaching Everyone with Accessible Community Health (REACH), a community-based intervention dedicated to providing quality, low-cost primary healthcare in underserved low-income, urban communities, announced that it would be expanding to cater for 2,000 Nigerians every year.

The grant will support its operation of a new REACH Primary Healthcare Hub in Kano, Nigeria.

The grant, provided by an anonymous donor, will enable REACH to further its mission and make a significant impact in the Gyadi-Gyadi, Taurani, Kano.

REACH is positioned to impact 20,000 families by 2024. The new REACH primary healthcare hub will be supporting an average of 300 customers daily, with 100 people receiving in-person care while others through EHA Care -a digital health platform- will access virtual consultations.

“We are thrilled to receive this generous grant from the Donor who would prefer to be anonymous,” Paul Hogan, EVP/Chief Operating Officer, at EHA Clinics, said.

The primary healthcare hub, which will be supported by six health posts and community pharmacies, aims to provide quality primary health care, childbirth and maternal services, home care, telemedicine, and pharmacy services to the community.

“We are deeply grateful for the recognition of our work and the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of the residents of the Gyadi-Gyadi community. We recognize and appreciate Eha Impact Ventures (EIV ), who played a crucial role in facilitating this grant, and our local stakeholders such as the Kano Emirates Council Committee on Health, who ensured that our services were tailored to the unique needs and concerns of the Gyadi-Gyadi community.

“Through their assistance, we secured a central location for our REACH Hub with access to public transportation and a well-developed road network, making it convenient for residents to reach us whenever necessary,” Hogan further added.

Since its inception in 2019, REACH has served over 7000 families in Kano State, undertaken over 17,00 homecare visits, and trained over 50 community health workers. It has been 4 years of delivering quality and affordable healthcare.
