Community support is strongly connected to good health and wellbeing throughout life, alongside accessible and affordable health care services. This is why the Vision Development Foundation is providing medical assistance in the form of funding surgical camps, provision of equipment, building facilities and sponsoring medical trips for complicated surgeries abroad. All our health care support initiatives are geared towards supporting the health sector to perform, provide, or arranged logistics to promote, improve, conserve, or restore the mental or physical well-being of the poor and vulnerable groups of people. There is a high prevalence of communicable and non-communicable diseases in The Gambia. It is an established fact that infection, poverty and lack of access to health care facilities have led to inappropriate health-seeking behaviours thus contributing to ill health. We understand medical intervention alone cannot solve these challenges. So, we support health advocacy programmes geared towards encouraging sustainable social and behaviour change towards greater recognition and understanding of health messages, and the need for communities and individuals to maintain healthier lifestyles and habite.
