INNER-CITY LAGOS MEDICAL OUTREACH

The Inner City Lagos medical outreach was a medical intervention which was aimed at improving the health conditions and lifestyle choices of the beneficiaries comprising of local residents and illiterate and semi-literate traders. Areas covered included eye tests, dental check-ups, general check-ups and medical administration at the Aroloya community. The Aroloya community is located in Lagos State, and popularly known for its busy atmosphere and filthy environment. However, members of the community are more easily accessible (in proximity) to privately-run health facilities which often offer more costly services. The closest public health facility at 2.7km from Aroloya is the Lagos Island General Hospital, which also happens to be one of the oldest hospitals in Nigeria, and clearly in need of updated equipment to improve healthcare delivery. This intervention helped bring basic medical care closer to the beneficiaries, and improved financial access as well, of beneficiaries to the services and medication.
