Despite the drop in Child Mortality in Nigeria between 1999 and 2020, there are still 114 deaths per every 1000 birth in the country; and the risk of dying in sub-saharan Africa as a child is about ten times higher than in the Western Europe region (UNIGMR, 2021)

There are hundreds of innocent children and families in need of health care services but unable to access them, with many stranded in hospitals and unable to pay their token bills.

HDI Hospital Outreach and Medical support helps to identify and settle the medical bills of indigent children in public hospitals/clinics who remain stranded because of their inability to offset their bills.
