Dear Ngozi
I am happy that you choose to work on dementia, an aspect of the health that is the least explored hence receives very little government and public attention. Dementia is a very important health problem affecting millions of elderly people worldwide. Thousands of people suffer from this condition in Nigeria but only a small proportion of this people are diagnosed. Dementia is a serious health issue because it impacts on memory, thinking and social skills. Its impact not only the suffers but the families and partners are affected in equal proportion. Recognising and dealing with dementia can be a life changing experience for the affected people.
Sanchia centre for health promotion has track record and experience in issues relating to Dementia. We are willing and able to partner with you on this project. I believe that we can draw on each others expertise and skills in a collaborative way to ensure a high quality project that will change the face and attitude of dementia in the target community while also bringing to the fore the importance of dementia care givers in Mbaise.We can help especially in the area of medical education, training and scaling up of knowledge of stakeholders in dementia management. We can also help align the project with current dementia paradigm already adopted by many western countries. paradigm.
