The LAPO Community Campaign For Cancer Control (LAPO-C4) In Nigeria (Since 2016)
The LAPO-C4 is an innovative community-based intervention aimed at creating awareness on cancer prevention, screening for early detection and control. The disease has become one of the major causes of morbidity and mortality in Nigeria with over 100 persons diagnosed every year out of which about 80% die due to ignorance.
Integration of Health Education and Microfinance Services
The integration project provides an opportunity for clients of LAPO Microfinance Bank to also benefit from health and social intervention services delivered by Lift Above Poverty Organization (LAPO) during Union and Branch Council Meetings.
The project is implemented across the country with health staff deployed to sensitize clients on malaria, family planning methods, pregnancy care, cervical cancer, hepatitis-B, child immunization, diarrhoea in children prevention, HIV/AIDS and the dangers of self-medication, etc.
Strengthening Integrated Delivery Of HIV/AIDS Services (SIDHAS) Project
In April 2014, LAPO signed a contractual agreement with the Association for Reproductive and Family Health (ARFH) to carry out community-based intervention on Strengthening Integrated Delivery of HIV/AIDS Services (SIDHAS) in Edo Central Senatorial District of Edo State.
SIDHAS was a USAID-funded, family-centred community-led intervention project that engaged with the communities to take action to prevent the spread of HIV/AIDS; provide care and track the welfare of People Living With HIV (PLHIV) including Orphaned and Vulnerable Children (OVC). The project enabled greater access to health care and support at all levels.
