Historically Health has been a key component of the Church’s mandate and has remained core in Caritas Nigeria's activities right from inception.

The Health portfolio focuses on interventions that promotes wellness of every individual and integral human development with a focus on both communicable diseases and non-communicable diseases as well as maternal and the new-born child.

Caritas Nigeria leverages the existing structure of the Church in her programming. This provides her with tremendous capacity to implement programs in hundreds of primary and secondary health facilities scattered all across the country.

Interventions are delivered by teams broken into different Program Areas or health sub-specialties including: Program Management; Grants; Clinical; Care and Treatment; Adherence/Prevention; Laboratory Services; OVC; Strategic Information; Pharmacy and Supply Chain Management.
