Health care disparities in the Imo state have resulted in preventable deaths and it continues to affect the life expectancy of the communities in Imo State. One of the greatest challenges facing our health care system today is the provision of comprehensive, quality health care that is Safe, Effective, Patient-centered, Timely, Efficient, and Equitable. The ultimate plan for ORAUSA is to promote models that will focus on both short-term and long-term goals for health services that will provide measurable outcomes and profitability.

 

THE PURPOSE OF OUR MEDICAL MISSION

The purpose of this program is to provide direct healthcare to indigent and older citizens in the rural areas of Orlu, Imo State, Nigeria. Direct healthcare includes, but not limited to performing vital signs, immunization, health education, nutrition, hygiene, and sanitation. The ORAUSA, in December of each year, dispatches a team of U.S. based medical doctors to pre-arranged centers in Orlu, Imo State, Nigeria to perform health screening, counseling, and possible surgery. The team dispenses medications to the targeted groups.
