It is of common knowledge that Governments set policies and develop programmes which trained staff in their employment are expected to implement. For various reasons however, the objectives/targets of governments are hardly met despite the inputs, contributions and support of multilateral/bilateral donors and/or collaborating partners.
These observed gaps between existing realities and desired standards/goals/objectives cause frustration among policy makers, consumers and providers of health services. These persistent defects/gaps are the needs which Primary Health Care and Health Management Centre (PriHEMAC) is set up to correct/bridge. While working with the Government staff, the officials of collaborating Agencies/Partners and other NGOs, it is the vision of this organization to promote the health status and well-being of members of the communities particularly the mothers and children through capacity building of identified workers/students, improved provision of health services and community empowerment.
