Phase3 Telecom said that its grant access portfolio has been expanded to support local high impact health based initiatives nationwide; principally those that are designed to combat the disproportionate access of the poor to affordable and quality healthcare services.

This is as part of its increased corporate social responsibility (CSR) drive.

According Stanley Jegede, chief executive, Phase3 Telecom “in the past four years, the scope of Phase3 health based grants have significantly increased to a greater percentage almost at par with its ICT grants portfolio, due to the obvious alarming increase in the death rate of the nation’s citizenry from causes that are less terminal or natural; and it is quite disconcerting that chief causes of death beyond security and social crises often stem from treatable causes that only requires timely, effective and affordable medical care’.

Phase3 also believes that the nation’s low global ranking in terms of human development, especially in the area of access to affordable and quality healthcare as well as standard medical facilities or clinical health centers would improve quicker if more individuals and organizations support credible programs that focus on equal access to healthcare and its outcomes; as government and allied agencies alone cannot resolve this.

Thus, Phase3 will once again ride on its partnership with Global Initiative for Peace, Love and Care (GIPLC) to provide financial assistance to indigent patients in the capital’s general hospitals with Gwagwalada being the first stop; as GIPLC is a credible NGO and an organization that thrives on collective actions and is well versed in building networks that can sustainably combat healthcare disparities beyond Nigeria such as South Sudan.
