Conditions of widespread poverty and insecurity, coupled with a lack of health facilities and basic medicines, continue to exact a heavy toll on the health of children across Africa.
Governments, businesses and civil society share the responsibilities of improving health care systems, and ensuring greater public access and more affordable care and medicines for children and their parents.
Africa for Jesus Ministries International works to ensure that governments are implementing needed measures to enhance health care delivery in rural areas of Africa. We construct and service many new health care facilities, equip existing ones, and provide and support medical personnel, including traditional birth attendants. Africa for Jesus Ministries also will engage in the formation of community-based abuse prevention activities, along with day care centers for children of working parents, and psychological, legal and social support to both families and orphaned children.
In addition, Africa for Jesus Ministries will launch a two-year global health campaign which is focused in part on ensuring that government policies tackle the gravest threats to child health, including malnutrition and preventable diseases.
