OUR CHALLENGE: Public Health
Our major challenge for many cities, villages and others around
the world is to improve Public Health in developing countries. Such
initiative clusters with reducing poverty and building a better
future for tomorrow.
Our challenge is to get help to rural areas where most of indigenous
people are devastated by national, tribal and civil wars. AIDS/HIV
is not the only killer in the third world, malaria on small or big
scale is taking so many lives without leaving out yellow fever,
typhoid, tuberculosis, hepatitis, African sleeping diseases, leprosy
and much, much more.
The lack of medical supplies, facilities and skilled medical personnel
to provide care, has fueled Uzima International
to combat these killers by structuring PREVENTION PLANS.
TO PREVENT MOST DISEASES by putting in place sanitation systems
and solid waste managements in developing countries
Once the systems are in place, an assessment with be made to evaluate
results Uzima International's actions and operations in several
communities. Key health issues will be brought in the open. People
will be educated how to stay healthy by showing, displaying and
campaigning safe practices and behavioral changes from governance,
infrastructure, public health, social improvements and environmental
