" I had always be concerned that those who need quality health the most have the least access. Access to quality health shouldn't be a question of income but rather a fundamental human right. Being a Millennium gives me the opportunity to meet and work with brilliant and like minds to make the healthcare world the best there has ever been. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Healthy Living For All (H.L.A)
Healthy Living For All (H.L.A) aims to educate the people by providing pertinent information about things that can affect their Health and Wellbeing. The project will reach out to communities and schools to have physical sessions to raise awareness and teach them to make good use of available health resources and to make better health choices to improve their wellbeing. Taking the above steps is definitely going to ensure SUSTAINABILITY of SDG 3. The team believes that Good Health and Wellbeing is an integral part of a nation's development. We are young, passionate changemakers who have decided to join and are optimistic that the project would take them one step closer to this goal.
