Welcome to Zac Okunoren Healthcare Foundation Site!
To have good standard of healthcare for our people especially at Primary Healthcare levels.
*Support local and state governments’ effort towards providing good healthcare for our people.
*Improve care given to women and children with the aim of reducing mortality and morbidity rates.
*Provide available medical equipments and consumables.
*Promote healthy lifestyles through public education and awareness programmes.
Our activities, for now, have been centred round Awoyaya Primary Health Centre (PHC1) in Ibeju-Lekki local government of Lagos State, Nigeria.
The small PHC provides general outpatient care, maternal and infant welfare programmes for many communities within its catchment area.
Internally, there is a delivery room, postnatal room and the third room is occupied by the resident nursing officer.
The reception flows into the corridor that runs through the health centre. There is a single toilet/shower room for all the patients.
The nurses and midwives provide 24hr service. A national youth service doctor is posted to the PHC to support the nursing staff. However, the doctors do not live locally thus making it difficult for them to attend regularly.
Infant Welfare Clinic
This is a very busy clinic – the PHC attends to 70 to 100 children from 0-12mths on Tuesdays. The day starts with health education. The children are then weighed, examined and immunised appropriately.
This clinic holds every Wednesday and attends to approximately 50-70 women. As there is no appointment system, they all converge for the health talk, followed by individual examination and advice.
On average, 20-30 babies are delivered every month.
