FHF, Inc. "Each One Teach One" strives to curate and disseminate quality health education materials and information to underserved and underdeveloped countries.

 

What is Advocacy?

Advocacy is the act or process of supporting a cause; in short, it means to speak up, to fight for a cause or plead the case of others who may not be able to do so or who are suffering from an injustice. Advocates seek to influence decisions, within political and economic institutions and social systems.

Fomukong Health Foundation practices Health Advocacy, which promotes and encompasses the direct service, to individuals and families, those activities that promote health and access to health care in communities.

This advocacy supports and promotes:

  • Rights of patients
  • Enhanced health policies
  • Improved community health
  • Availability of safe and quality care

 

Advocacy is Not

  • Public awareness: Advocacy is not just a public campaign to inform people about our organization.
  • Informing governments about Fomukong Health Foundation.
  • Raising public awareness about Fomukong Health Foundation.
  • Fundraising. The primary purpose of advocacy is not to increase our budget but to direct resources directly to where they are needed through our programs.

 

"Each One Teach One"

Many of you may be familiar with the African-American proverb "Each One Teach One."  It begins one person at a time.  It is a known fact that better and focused education is crucial to prevent most populations from developing chronic diseases.  FHF, Inc. curates the most up-to-date information as technological advancements and government regulations continue to change the face of healthcare information.

 

How We Do What We Do

FHF uses the following approaches and strategies in its advocacy efforts:

  • Health education through online and offline channels and networks
  • Grassroots Health Awareness Campaigns
  • Partnering for Education – working with local authorities, educational and community health clinic leaders to:
      • Create & distribute health fact sheets
      • Distribute condoms

Through "Each One Teach One," original health education materials are created for dissemination to community members and families and, where appropriate, community clinic healthcare professionals. Health information resources may include calendars, posters, booklets and games for children.  FHF, Inc. also creates and disseminates multilingual materials.

 

How Can You Help?

FHF needs help with:

  • Design of printable and electronic health fact sheets to forward to community clinic healthcare workers and to send to village elders and local media outlets.
  • Sharing and forwarding our social media health education messages by tagging us with @fhfinc and using FHF's campaign hashtags.
  • Propagating FHF health fact sheets to network of family and friends throughout Africa using email and social media networks.
  • Collecting lists of needed medical supplies, equipment and necessary repairs needed in specific community clinics.
  • Identifying and procuring medical supplies, equipment and contract labour to help community clinics in need.
  • Shipping/receiving, distribution and installation of collected medical equipment.
  • Enlisting allies in the U.S. and Africa to meet the supplies, equipment and repair needs of community clinics.

As the founder and CEO of the Fomukong Health Foundation, a nonprofit healthcare foundation dedicated to making a positive impact on the health crisis in Sub-Saharan Africa, I have led this charge by purchasing new and used medical equipment and hospital supplies ALL of which have been donated to various medical facilities on the continent of Africa.

Importantly, the Fomukong Health Foundation has engaged in a variety of educational and preventative seminars over the past eleven years in the areas of sexually-transmitted diseases, HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, cervical cancer and breast cancer.

Most recently, FHF is developing and implementing programs to improve the conditions of hospitals and clinics in Africa. FHF recently visited a number of health clinics and hospitals in Africa. We found that all of the hospitals had deplorable conditions. The surgical, labor and delivery rooms were in need of major facelifts. There were no emergency rooms and these facilities were not equipped to handle the simplest of emergency situations.

So you that can understand the severity of the problem, I made a video of a surgical center at a major hospital:

FHF's agenda is to equip these facilities properly in order for them to be able to handle even simple medical conditions.

Please, we need your help to help the people of these nations!

You can also spread the word in your social networks by using the #SaveOurClinics or #EquipOurClinics and tagging us on Facebook.

 

Peace and Blessings,

 

Ndika Fomukong
