However, there remain in our communities profound situation of health inequalities with the urgent need to bridge the gap.

Following the success of this pilot, more centres will open in other deprived communities in Nigeria.

It will interest you to know that we have the unreserved consent of the Kings of the said communities and we have been offered premises for the project.
