Here’s a quote by the founder of Project ECHO Dr SanjeevArora, New Mexico USA – “In the US and around the world people are not getting access to the specialty care the need, when they need it, for complex and treatable conditions” The above vision and purpose is why PDI Nigeria decided to partner with Project ECHO Institute, University of New Mexico USA.
Project ECHO (Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes) is an innovative programme developed to treat chronic and complex diseases in rural and undeserved areas of the world. The project uses innovative technology to bridge the gap between urban healthcare specialists and providers in rural areas.
Partnership Goal & Mission
The mission of the PDI-Project ECHO partnership is to develop the capacity to safely treat chronic, common, and complex diseases in rural and underserved areas, and to monitor outcomes of this treatment while leveraging on our TeleHealthConsult platform. It is also to help build a network of (free) subscribed clients who are provided access to GPs and Specialists to manage their health long term and on regular basis.
