Rural health mission Nigeria (RHEMN) is a registered nonprofit organization that aims to improve the health of the vulnerable (women, children and youths) under-served Nigerians by supporting access to quality healthcare.
RHEMN was founded on 1st January 2014, made up of a group of highly motivated and innovative medical and non-medical professionals in Nigeria who are very passionate about community service focusing on bridging health care coverage gaps by improving healthcare access and reducing inequality. The founder Muhammad Ahmad is a motivated humanitarian whose passion is inspired by his personal experience as a young man growing up a remote community where residents including pregnant women walk distance to access healthcare and some times patients die en-route to the nearest health facility.
The organization launched its first medical outreach in June 2015 in Gembu community, Sardauna LGA (Mambilla Plateau), Taraba State even though the organization has started health education campaigns since 2014. RHEMN was legally registered with the Nigeria Corporate Affairs Commission on 17th – 03 – 2017 with registration number; CAC/IT/NO-95948.
Our intervention focuses on three areas:
1. Supporting access to access to quality healthcare by conducting medical outreach, immunization campaigns etc
2. Strengthening local health facilities by training health personnel on basic skills, renovating facilities, providing essential medicines, consumables and equipment
3. Creating awareness about important public health issues and supporting policy advocacy.
RHEMN activities including humanitarian interventions have since gone across five states in Northeast Nigeria including; Gombe, Borno, Yobe, Adamawa and Taraba between 2014 to 2018.
