Ask The Paediatricians Foundation celebrates our 5th Anniversary in July 2020. It is an opportunity to take stock of our impact online and offline and the milestones achievements.
Ask The Paediatricians Foundation started as a Facebook group on the 20th July 2020. Our Facebook group now has 638,000 members who are daily testifying about how Ask The Paediatricians Foundation is helping them take care of their children better and not repeating the mistakes made previously. Many shared with us their #MyATPstory available on our YouTube and Instagram channels.
Ask The Paediatricians Foundation started offline community medical outreaches in 2016 and till date ATP has reached more than 50,000 children directly in more than 100 community medical outreaches. We currently have over 40 State and Zonal Chapters with more than 2000 volunteers. ATP Outreaches are now conducted nationwide throughout Nigeria.
With the limitations imposed by the current ongoing pandemic which limited our May/June 2020 Outreaches, Ask The Paediatricians Foundation has launched a Telehealth initiative - ATP clinics - where parents and caregivers can have video consultations with our professionals at a moderate fee. We also continue to reach more families via our ATP mobile app which is available for free download on android and apple stores.
Ask The Paediatricians Foundation looks forward to that day in line with our mission statement when NO child in Nigeria and indeed the entire world will die from preventable CAUSES. We continue to promote the health and welfare of children in Nigeria through our various programmes.
Our Focus for the future
