Christian has recently launched a healthcare insurance initiative.
Integrating healthcare insurance with micro finance services, offers a unique way to overcome the burden of cost associated with accessing medical care. It aims to improve health and increase financial protection for marginalised groups, for whom it is easier to pay a little each month rather than to save large sums of money.
Marginalised groups and vulnerable individuals are often the worst affected by poor health; deprived of the information, money or access to health services that would help them prevent and treat illnesses.
Communities working with IADES also receive complimentary support such as healthcare workshops providing health education on preventing AIDS, malaria and other communicable diseases to improve the health among the disadvantaged.
As we continue our partnership with Christian Kadangah and IADES we will continue to develop programmes based on communities’ needs.
Poverty is a complex issue and so we work collaboratively with our field partner to ensure long lasting sustainable change.
We will endeavour to focus on gender equity and expand our rural outreach to make sure that we are reaching communities where our services are needed the most.
