Welcome to Health Compass Initiative.
Health Compass Initiative is a youth-led organization that tackles the burden of non-communicable diseases (NCDs) within Nigeria through community health education and provision of free NCD-related screening services.
Through our advocacy, we wish to encourage a proactive attitude among stakeholders within the health sector in Nigeria as regards NCD related policies and their implementation.
We Give Back To Our Community
Health Compass Initiative is non-profit, non-partisan and non-political hence, we bring dignified and non discriminatory NCD-related healthcare services to the doorstep of communities who need them the most.
This initiative is aimed at increasing the awareness of Nigerians to common NCDs, ensure early detection and follow up while connecting those living with NCDs with expert care.
