Summary

Real Medicine Foundation, supported by World Children’s Fund, has partnered with the Kwara State Ministry of Health, the Nigerian Youth Service Corps and the Gure Gwassoro Ward Development Committee to support the previously abandoned Gure Model Health Center. Situated near the Nigeria/Benin Republic border, the clinic is the only access to healthcare for a population of 154,376 in the Baruteen Local Government Area and its surrounding towns. Patients even cross the border from the Benin Republic to seek treatment at the clinic. Nigeria has the 4th lowest survival rate of children under five out of 191 countries, a child mortality rate of 140 per 1,000, and a maternal mortality rate accounting for 10% of the global burden of maternal deaths.

Ongoing Presence

Our ongoing efforts are the continual upgrade of the existing clinic and managing of the clinic according to RMF/WCF’s global standards, improving hygiene, function and safety as well as standard of medical operations; restore community faith in clinic’s operations.
