What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Nigeria has the 4th worst healthcare system in the world with 8 out of 10 Nigerians receiving subpar medical care or none at all, and countless Nigerians die prematurely. 8 out of 10 Nigerian doctors leave the country due to inadequate infrastructure, extremely limited resources, and low or irregular salaries.

Our programs

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Improving health care delivery and cost in low to middle income countries in Africa

The primary purpose of the above activity is to change the expectations of what is possible when serving the poor by providing high quality, international standard of care to the poor. These activities will include but are not limited to:

Short-term medical trips

The Jonah Inheritance will conduct short term medical trips by rotating doctors on two - three-week trips to provide free basic surgical care, medical supplies, training, and collaborating with local hospitals to provide basic surgical care and assistance to those without access to healthcare and surgical care. A special emphasis will be placed on women and children. This will be accomplished by taking medical specialists to those in need as an expression of Christian discipleship and humanitarian concern. The goal of this activity is to provide surgical and anesthesia care to the poor and provide surgical training and education to local doctors. Trained medical volunteers of the organization will perform these activities.

Constructing primary care clinics and a surgery center in Africa

The Jonah Inheritance aims to construct and provide oversight to small rural satellite clinical facilities operated by The Jonah Inheritance local doctors and practitioners that will be the foundational building blocks for the surgical center. These clinics will serve as the first point of contact for the poor in need of basic medical care for the purposes of triaging medical conditions that should be treated surgically as well as equipping and empowering local doctors in the communities to take ownership of their healthcare facilities. The basic primary medical services that these clinics will provide will include but are not limited to diagnostic care, vaccinations, telemedicine, low-level pharmaceutical medicines, and referral service for patients to the surgery center for procedures. These clinics and surgery centers will operate a cost structure that is a hybrid of free services and subsidized fees for the poor. An example would be a patient coming to the clinic and receiving free diagnostic care and finding out they need surgery. The clinic will refer the patient to the surgery center where they will receive out-patient surgery at a subsidized cost based on the patient’s ability to pay.

Population(s) Served

As reported in the Lancet Commission Global Surgery 2030 Report (2015) , a full understanding of the surgical disease and best treatment practices in LMICs is severely limited due to the lack of local areas' needs and research.

The primary purpose of this activity is to help the organization grow and adapt to the needs of the poor. This will best position the organization to leverage the information for entities such as The World Health Organization ( WHO), World Bank, LMIC federal ministries of health as well as local and international NGOs, etc.

These activities will include but are not limited to:

Capturing medical, demographic, and epidemiological data that will aid the organization to grow and adapt.
Creating a systematic process that uniformly collects core surgical indicators to better predict the surgical needs of the community.
Collecting standard medical data from each patient.
Utilize the information collated to build the foundation for a reliable insurance scheme.
Developing software that will aid in collecting and collating medical information and core surgical indicators for rural areas.

Population(s) Served

The primary purpose of this activity is to comprehensively serve the health care needs of Africa’s poor, one community at a time. The Jonah Inheritance strategy is to utilize a gospel-centered, strength-based community health development approach to population health improvement and building community capacity. TJI practitioners will work alongside people in LMICs communities to build on the combination of the human, spiritual, social, and physical capital that exists within local communities by identifying and mobilizing existing individual and community strengths or assets to collectively address the community’s concerns with regards to population health improvement.

These activities will include but are not limited to: Guardians program( health missionaries to the rural poor), education and training, religious and tribal reconciliation, and leadership and development training.

Data
  • We review compensation data across the organization (and by staff levels) to identify disparities by race.
  • We ask team members to identify racial disparities in their programs and / or portfolios.
  • We employ non-traditional ways of gathering feedback on programs and trainings, which may include interviews, roundtables, and external reviews with/by community stakeholders.
Policies and processes
  • We use a vetting process to identify vendors and partners that share our commitment to race equity.
  • We have a promotion process that anticipates and mitigates implicit and explicit biases about people of color serving in leadership positions.
  • We seek individuals from various race backgrounds for board and executive director/CEO positions within our organization.
  • We have community representation at the board level, either on the board itself or through a community advisory board.
  • We help senior leadership understand how to be inclusive leaders with learning approaches that emphasize reflection, iteration, and adaptability.
  • We measure and then disaggregate job satisfaction and retention data by race, function, level, and/or team.
  • We engage everyone, from the board to staff levels of the organization, in race equity work and ensure that individuals understand their roles in creating culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
