PROBLEM STATEMENT

The leading cause of diseases in the world especially Africa is ignorance, lack of awareness, lack of information. Most times all diseases have warning signs and actually they practically alert us about their coming but because ‘the ears hear and eyes see what they know’, we don’t get their alerts until they put us down. According to the world health organisation, the leading cause of death in the world is cardiovascular (heart diseases) but surprisingly over 90% of the heart diseases are preventable.

PROBLEM STATEMENT

Maternal and child mortality is another big menace is public health but 90% of its causes are preventable. But if preventable, then why do people die from it, the answer lies in lack of information. In Africa, most people visit hospitals only when they are very sick yet this is where they can access information about their health. Accordingly there has been a hike in the consultation fees across all private health facilities in the world, this further pushes away people from accessing medical consultation services. And thus the public remains ignorant about their health, fall sick and pay huge bills to get treatment of the would-be avoided illnesses if they had knowlegde about them.
