Rural Health & Community Development

CEHRD is concerned about the health of the rural Niger Delta community members. This Program area seeks to address issues of rural health. CEHRD runs this program to create awareness, better knowledge, and provide active health care for the rural people in the Niger Delta geographic communities. We also promote health protection through enlightenment, and outreach campaigns against prevalent diseases such as tuberculosis, diabetes, HIV/AIDS, etc, and planned parenting. 


CEHRD is experienced in the execution of Health Programs in the Niger Delta region of Nigeria and in collaboration with other organization, have participated and implemented diverse health projects. We have collaborated with Clinton Health Access Initiative (CHAI) to implement a lot of interventions in the health sectors in Rivers, Cross Rivers, Ebonyi and Imo States.

CEHRD promotes sustainable development of the community in partnership with government where appropriate. However, we oppose ill-planned Development Projects that neglect input from local peoples, including destroying the basis of their rural livelihood and economies. We also promote human rights based development.

 

It is obvious that due to the unevenness in evolution of societies, the development process is often initiated and led by certain categories of people in the community privileged by its history to be influential –the top-down approach often lead to “dumped development”. Nevertheless, the development process can only be successful if along the way, there emerge a collectively enlightened people. Apart from this, we are left with a community of beggars and benefactors.

Over the years, CEHRD has carefully ensured that its activities are not influenced by politicians. This has been maintained through non acceptance of grants or gratifications from government, oil and gas multinationals or their agencies. The revenue accrued from crude oil which contributes to over 90% of the national revenue, since 1965, predominantly returns to the pocket of those in power and their allies.
