Fellow Nurses Africa believes that advocacy is a pillar of healthcare. We instinctively advocate for our clients in their workplaces, homes and in their communities; but legislative and political advocacy is no less important to advancing their health and safety.
FNA offers the information, tools, and resources that nurses and other healthcare professionals need to become effective advocates.
Championing interests of the healthcare consumers, FNA also amplifies the voice of vulnerable populations , by advocating directly with decision and policy makers to make to make policies that will enhance our health indices. Through the instrument of cyber journalism, we serve as a voice to the voiceless and the oppressed
FNA’s Health education service is designed as a social science that draws from the biological, environmental, psychological, physical and medical sciences to promote health and prevent disease, disability and premature death through education-driven voluntary behavior change activities.
These amongst others we do through our community services and outreaches. The overall goal is to positively influence the health behavior of the vulnerable populations and the community as well as the living and working conditions that influence their health.
Our team of volunteer home care nurses provide range of medical care and treatments to our clients at the comfort of their homes. They meet with patients shortly after they are discharged from the hospital, perform an assessment, measure vital signs and make sure the patient understands how to take their medication.
We provide treatment, such as wound care, dressing changes, administer IV medication and change catheters. We assist them in the performance of activities of daily living which they could have done if they have the knowledge and strength.
In addition, our home care nurses may assess the patient’s home environment to determine if changes or accommodations are needed due to the patient’s medical needs.
Immunization currently prevents 2-3 million deaths every year in all age groups from diseases like diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis (whooping cough), influenza , measles and other non communicable diseases ( NCDs). Not only that, they also hold up broader gains in education and economic development.
It is one of the most successful and cost-effective public health interventions and additional 1.5 million deaths could be avoided, however, if global vaccination coverage improves.
Despite these merits of vaccinations, many people living around Africa have no access to them.
It is our believe at Fellow Nurses Africa that expanding access to immunization is crucial to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Through our vaccination services, in partnership with our sponsors and thousands of volunteers across Africa, we ensure vaccines are made accessibile to everyone living in the nooks and crannies of African continent at no cost.
