Millennium Fellowship Project: Better Health Project
Better Health Project is a project aimed at creating a more informed public, and improving health outcomes through health education.
In Nigeria, a great number of diseases and deaths could be properly managed or avoided, if people were more knowledgeable about their health status. Every day, people die not totally because of lack of funds to access healthcare, but also due to misinformation and lack of sufficient knowledge regarding their health status. There is a lot of wrong information being consumed by the general public regarding certain health conditions. This project is aimed at bridging the gap of misinformation and lack of information by providing quality and accessible health education based programs with a focus on Sickle Cell Disease in secondary schools based in Calabar, Nigeria.
