Medical outreach involves providing health care and assistance to people outside of the original work vicinity who can not access them. Statistics show that over 50 percent of Africans lack access to medical health care systems, leading to a high mortality rate. Most African countries are developing countries. Hence, most of them are unable to provide their people with adequate health facilities. Due to the high poverty rate in most African communities, most people cannot afford the major medications needed for their treatment.
Medical outreach programs will be of great benefit to African communities in the following ways.
- Reduced Mortality rate: When most of these African communities lacking adequate health care systems are offered access to health care and medical assistance, the death rates resulting from it will drastically drop.
- Improved access to Health care facilities: Medical outreaches provide communities with inadequate health care facilities access to medical care facilities and assistance.
- Prevention of diseases: Medical Outreach Programs will help communities lacking adequate health care facilities prevent diseases such as polio, meningitis, smallpox, chickenpox, yellow fever, amongst others, through vaccination of an entire community.
- Free treatment of diseases: Medical outreach provides medical assistance to people who cannot afford medical care with free opportunities to get treated for their illness at little or no cost.
Non-profit organizations organize most of the medical outreaches we have had in the past. A lot more will be achieved if the government organizes such outreaches.
