How We Work
Our work in some cases is within existing health and social systems to realize everyone’s right to accessible and appropriate health care and decent living standard focus on weak communities and local Government areas.
PROFOH has worked in many Africa countries affected by natural disasters, conflict, major disease threats and health system collapse where the local governments or States were either unable or unwilling to provide basic services such as safe drinking water, quality basic education and health care for large numbers of their citizens. In this context, preventive and curative health services are often severely neglected, resulting in major short and long-term consequences for social and economic development.
Dealing with the challenges of today requires problem-solvers who bring different perspectives and are willing to take risks. PROFOH emerged out of a pursuit to inspire and support the community, and a desire for actions to speak louder than words. Established in 2000, we’re an organization driven by progressive ideas, bold actions, and a strong foundation of support.
