IMPROVING ACCESS TO HEALTHCARE GLOBALLY
MPACT FOR MANKIND is an emerging catalyst for change in underserved communities all over the world. After seeing the disparities in healthcare and education caused by poverty in our work in the local healthcare community and in our travels abroad, we felt called to take action. In 2017, our team of healthcare professionals came together to found this organization to address those suffering globally because their basic needs are not being met. We aim to improve health outcomes, to empower through knowledge, and provide hope for a chance at a brighter future.
our mission in action
In Africa, it is estimated that 47% of the population in the sub-Saharan nations live in extreme poverty (less than $1.95 per day). This level of poverty results in severe health and wellness epidemics including malnutrition, waterborne illnesses, and other chronic diseases.
MPACT is working to help alleviate the needless suffering and death caused by a lack of supplies. Our work begins in the village of Bibogobogo in the Democratic Republic of Congo. We are partnering with People Care Association to treat common issues such as pain, fever, blood pressure management, and others in addition to providing care supplies. Our goal is to expand the services offered to include medical missions, development of healthcare access points, and education for the in-country medical providers.
We are working with the villages of Myan and Maissade of Haiti and the surrounding community to better their quality of life. We have formed a strategic partnership with CoreLuv International, based out of Houston, to enhance the existing medical clinics in Haiti, providing much-needed equipment, supplies, and staffing. Currently, a Haitian doctor is only able to see patients three days per week for only a few hours, so we want to bring this clinic up to running at full capacity. We are scheduling medical missions in 2018 and 2019 to offer medical services to all of the residents of those communities. We are also working to expand the capabilities of the Mayan Health Clinic to allow it to provide more services on a more consistent basis.
In our own community, people are suffering from a lack of access to necessary medical care. We strive to bring positive change to our neighbors by addressing the affordability, transportation problems, and availability of quality care that they are struggling with. We will be focusing on improving health outcomes, addressing health issues before they become critical, decreasing the burden on local emergency rooms, and increasing health literacy and education for everyone in our community.
