The ANPA Virtual Medical Mission to Calabar Nigeria has recently commenced. Thanks to ANPA members who volunteered their time and donated money towards the mission. We were able to:
** Attend to 1500+ medical and surgical patients via telemedicine
** Provide hundreds of COVID-19 testing
** Conduct teaching seminars to Nigeria healthcare workers
** Initiate clinical trials in Nigeria

Sunrise Channels TV interviewed our ANPA President, Mission Coordinator, and our Mission Partner (Child and Survival Organization of Nigeria). Link is in the bio.

It is that time of the year again when we do our ANPA WEEK and Medical Mission. However, this year, because of the COVID-19 Pandemic, we are doing it VIRTUALLY with our partners (CSDON) in Calabar.

As part of our Medical Mission, ANPA has determined to perform COVID19 tests to help mainly with the fight of COVID19 (amongst others) in Nigeria.

There are other costs involved in the Medical Mission to include drugs, transportation etc.

Please, we implore YOU to kindly DONATE to this cause to help ANPA in our mission of “A Healthier Nigeria in a Healthier World”.

DONATION LINK IS HERE (https://anpa.org/medicalmission) AND CAN BE FOUND IN THE BIO.

Today is World Health Day 2021 🌎

This is a day that the World Health Organization (@who) has observed since 1950 to draw attention to the world a specific health problem and raise awareness about it.

This year’s World Health Day theme is: Building a fairer, healthier world. This theme points to the well-known fact that there are health disparities within the world, countries, states, and local regions. We, as citizens of the world, should do better when it comes to helping bridge the equality of healthcare for all!

This year‘s theme aligns with ANPA‘s agenda, “A healthier Nigeria in a healthier world”. It is a well-known fact that the health disparities in Nigeria have been quite devastating. Since inception of ANPA we have strived to help change that narrative. Although we’ve done some things, there’s more to be done. Let’s all do it together! Let’s make Nigeria and the world a better place to live in.

#WorldHealthDay #health #healthdisparities #medicine #healthcareforall #physician #doctors #dentist #medicaldoctor #healthcare #minoritiesinmedicine #nigeria #nigeriandoctor #nigerianphysician #doc

Covid-19 has taken the world by storm. It has exposed just how wide healthcare disparities are between local cities, states, and nations.

Wouldn’t it be great if there was a group we can use to help make the healthcare space better?

Look no further to ANPA as being that group!

If you feel called to take part in the healthcare space in Nigeria as well as the United States, come join us! Go to: www.anpa.org and join us today!
