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.

 

Strengthening Capacity of Communities for Sustained Delivery of Integrated HIV and SRH Services (STRECOMS) Extension Project, is a PMTCT project being implemented from a generous grant by ViiV Healthcare through the Positive Action for Children’s Fund (PACF). The STRECOMS Project implementation which commenced in January 2018, is building on the achievements and impact of STRECOMS original project which ran from 2014–2016, by focusing on communities and schools, and targeting to keep 20,000 HIV negative adolescent girls and young women within the age group of (10-24) negative, and prevent unintended pregnancies among HIV positive women while linking women and their families to PMTCT and ART services in collaboration with communities, health facilities and the local health authorities.

PSJ’s mobile clinic has reached 87000 women and children over the past 10 years, and in the process saved thousands of lives. “The mobile clinic is a lifeline for children and women in the marginalized communities we serve. “Once they arrive our village, the doctor, the two nurses, the two midwives, the community health extension worker and the drug dispenser all work tirelessly to attend to all our sick women and children. The midwives conduct antenatal care for pregnant women; the nurses provide immunization, vitamin A supplementation and deworming medicines to our children”, said Halimatu, 22 and a nursing mother of four in Kawo village.
