Due to lack of health insurance, many families find themselves in poverty because they must pay out of pocket for their treatments.
*According to the 2017 report from the World Bank and WHO (World Health Organization).
The major issue is not only the lack of health insurance but also access to better-quality healthcare. Millions of people, especially children, die in their homes or in the so-called clinics or hospitals because those facilities cannot provide the right treatments according to their conditions. The hospitals cannot perform basic emergency surgical interventions due to lack of training, anesthesia equipment, and continuous oxygen supply. Some of the medical professionals in low resource countries are not well trained to meet the healthcare needs of the population. Several medical facilities don’t have the right equipment to even diagnose or treat the patients. In addition to this, individuals with rare and orphan diseases are hopeless, they cannot afford to cover their medical expenses or travel where quality healthcare is available. Unfortunately, patients with critical conditions die in their homes or in the hospitals where they fail to provide their care. Some hospitals keep the patient imprisoned when they cannot pay the medical bills.
It is for this reason the Justice Health Initiative organization was born to give a second chance to many patients who have no access to quality healthcare that could save their lives. No matter the race, country, religion, socio-economic status, or nationality, we believe that every individual has the right to healthcare. We are committed to speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute, and speak up and judge fairly; defend the rights of the poor and needy.
