Physicians (Doctors) for Social Justice (PSJ)


 

Vision and Mission

We envision a society where every individual in every rural community lives in optimal health and wellbeing.

A community of development workers and health professionals who seek to ensure that every family in every rural community in Nigeria has optimal access to essential services including healthcare, water and sanitation, education, and sustainable livelihood through  direct healthcare services delivery, community mobilization and engagement, capacity development, and micro grant making to vulnerable households.

Physicians (Doctors) for Social Justice (PSJ) is a non-profit community-based development organization registered with the government of Nigeria. PSJ was founded in 2004 by young physicians who witnessed firsthand, the devastating impact of poverty and disease on the rural poor in northern Nigeria. Working with meager resources, under very challenging circumstances and environment, PSJ’s activities aim to reduce the burden of diseases among the rural poor, as well as promote community health, and achieve broader social justice for marginalized rural communities in Nigeria.
