School Clinic- Establish a health post (using a porta-cabin) in each camp with close link to secondary and tertiary health facility for referral purpose. Mobile Clinic- Mobile clinics with regular (2-3 visits per week) to each camp will also be a welcome step. This entails the recruitment of health professionals in motor vans who go round the IDP communities to provide medical services to the people. Open Day/Medical Outreach- This is a medical outreach that holds every quarter at the School Without Wall sites in each of the IDP camps. During this outreach, the general outreach public and friends of Life Builders Initiative are invited to visit the camp. Some of the direct results of the past outreach held include: Procure and deploy 2 ambulances for emergencies plus one 14-18 seater Bus for referral as well as clinic visits.
Opportunities for Partnership
We estimate that each health post (set-up and maintenance x 1yr) will cost N2million, for a total of N10million for 5 camps.
We estimate that a mobile clinic (purchase and maintenance x 1yr) will cost N7million x 2 vans for a total of N14million.
We estimate an ambulance will cost N5million x 2 ambulances for a total of N10million
We estimate one 14-16 seaters bus will cost N3.5million.
