Centre for Research, Education and Development of Rights in Africa (CREDO-Africa)
The Center for Research & Development of Rights in Africa (CREDO) is an organization that campaigns for African rights. It is an advocate for the people. It works with governments and communities to ensure that political interests do not come before the needs of Africans, especially with regards to access to proper healthcare. In particular, there are a major portion of the world total infected with Tuberculosis and HIV and AIDS living in Africa. CREDO works to raise awareness and needed resources.
CREDO fights to give proper care and treatment to all Africans. It knows that millions of people die each year from preventable, treatable and manageable health issues. Through research, education and development, CREDO takes action for a better health system with more trained workers providing greater access.
Links to the health workforce crisis
CREDO realizes that Africa has a tremendous shortage of qualified health workers, and it attributes this as the central obstacle to delivering a wide range of critical health services. It recognizes that much of the shortage is due to “brain drain” where there is a distinct migration of workers to up North. CREDO advocates for wealthy countries to be socially conscious by assuring human rights with a response to the crisis. It promotes education and retention of health workers where needed most.
