ABOUT THE NIGERIA DIASPORA DIAGNOSTIC FOUNDATION (NDDTF)
NDDTF is registered as a charitable and educational nonprofit corporation dedicated to the support of healthcare facilities that promote, restore and maintain health through the provision of medical diagnostic and restorative healthcare services in Nigeria. This Diaspora-led transformative project to establish a comprehensive diagnostic and trauma center in Nigeria is a unique Nigeria Diaspora Legacy Initiative that has the potential to broadly define and advance the role of the Nigeria Diaspora in determining the future of health in Nigeria and even the entire Sub-Saharan Region of Africa.
In order to achieve our goal, NDDTF initiatives will focus on:
NDDTF is established as a charitable and educational organization dedicated to the support of healthcare facilities that promote, restore and maintain health through the provision of medical diagnostic and restorative healthcare services.
We collectively believe that by providing affordable and accurate diagnostic services, timely healthcare interventions, and beneficial health education, we will definitely improve patient quality of life, save lives and extend quality lifetimes in Nigeria.
With an estimated population of over 160 million Nigerians, it is imperative that we invest in the health of those medically under-served Nigerians, friends of Nigeria and corporate expatriate workers, especially those who reside in Nigeria.
People are dying every minute in Nigeria from curable illnesses due to lack of timely, adequate and affordable diagnostic services. Currently, many Nigerians and even foreign nationals residing in Nigeria have to embark on expensive medical trips out of Nigeria to Europe, India, United States, and other destinations in their quest for reliable medical services. Many Nigerians abroad have either lost a family relative or friend due to causes directly attributable to curable ailment and lack of reliable medical diagnosis and effective treatment. For every such unfortunate occurrence of unnecessary, preventable deaths, we have always vowed to “do something” to address the “crisis in health care” in our communities. In another context, the recent Ebola virus (EBV) pandemic greatly underscores the need to establish top-level medical centers in Nigeria, specializing in accurate diagnosis and treatment of known and emerging tropical pandemic in Africa.
Therefore, in a unified quest for enduring solutions to these real challenges in health care, the idea for a Diagnostic and Trauma project was conceived by an unprecedented and unique private-sector collaboration of concerned individuals, entrepreneurs, non-governmental, professional and community organizations of Nigerians in Diaspora. This effort ultimately led to the establishment of the “Nigeria Diaspora Diagnostic and Trauma Foundation (NDDTF)”.
NDDTF has since embarked on this health project on behalf of all stakeholders who are committed to a brighter future of health in Nigeria. We invite you to participate in giving hope to millions of medically under-served people in Nigeria. The scope of the medical diagnostic services we envision today will transform the way healthcare is delivered and consumed in Nigeria.
The primary goal of NDDTF is to support the establishment and operations of medical diagnostic centers and the provision of other timely health-related interventions that save lives and extend quality lifetimes.
We will provide significant volunteer leadership and assistance in development and fundraising activities to ensure excellence in the delivery of world-class medical diagnostic services and state-of-the-art health education and training for health workers in Nigeria.
All of us, as NDDTF Stakeholders, share a deep commitment and goodwill to the pursuit of health and well-being of all Nigerians. Therefore, the strategic directions of NDDTF will be well-designed to accomplish the following:
