NMFUK through its health scheme planned programmes aimed at raising awareness and improving the state of healthcare of the needy, within local communities in Nigeria. To achieve this, NMFUK through its members actively organised, supported and conducted a number of activities directed towards achieving these goals.
This included programmes where direct contact with people from local communities in Nigeria was made, with the aim of treating and managing acute and chronic health problems.
Involvement of local community stakeholders had been a key to carrying out these projects, and their contribution helped to change attitudes and provide opportunities for advocacy for health promotional programmes, education and training for healthcare staff, and collaboration with local community leaders and individuals. A consequence of these projects has been the desire for more local stakeholder driven programmes, to be carried out in the same and other newer local communities.
