Health and Clinics

African Development Trust is committed to achieving the health-related Millennium Development Goals which include affirming the right to good health and providing adequate food for all. African Development Trust plans to do this by supporting the development of sustainable healthcare systems in the areas where we work.

Every day, nearly 19,000 children under age 5 die of mostly preventable causes, such as diarrhea, malaria, and pneumonia. These children die because they are poor, they do not have access to routine immunization or health services, and their diets lack sufficient vitamin A and other essential micronutrients.  ADT focuses on child and maternal health, using basic medicines, supplies, and interventions to prevent and treat illnesses at the community level.

ADT believes that good health and access to healthcare are fundamental human rights. The overall goal of ADT health programme is to improve the health of the world’s poorest people and ensure that they have access to food. ADT nutrition programmes work to prevent malnutrition and ensure that those who do suffer can gradually recover to full health.
