Access to primary healthcare is a significant area of intervention for the company in its areas of operation. With a low life expectancy at birth, access to health services continues to pose a critical challenge in Nigeria, and its promotion is therefore central to human development in the Country. In the long term, improved access will contribute to the achievement of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) No. 1 (No poverty) and No. 3 (Good Health and Well-being).
Specifically, the Company aims to make health services available to vulnerable populations, particularly in the rural areas of the Niger Delta. This will help reduce the local mortality rate, especially among women and children, and improve living conditions in the community by avoiding the aggravation of health challenges that occur due to the transportation of sick persons over long distances. It will also help to improve the productivity and the quality of life of the populace.
