List of Health NGOs in Nigeria

It is likely that you have heard the term NGO, but many people do not understand the full meaning of the acronym, let alone the meaning or function of the text.

So today we shall be discussing the meaning of NGO and also its functions, as well as the List of Health NGOs in Nigeria

Meaning and functions of NGOs in Nigeria

To begin with, the term “NGO” is an acronym that stands for “Non-governmental Organization.”

Now emphasizing the NGO’s connotative meaning, A non-governmental organization (NGO) is any non-profit, volunteer citizens’ group that operates on a local, national, or international scale. It is generally formed to engage in non-profit activities (that is to say, it was not established for profit-making).

It is task-oriented and driven by people who share a common interest. NGOs perform a wide range of service and humanitarian functions, bring citizen concerns to Governments, advocate and monitor policies, and encourage political participation through the dissemination of information.

Some are centered on specific issues, such as:

  • Human rights
  • Agricultural development
  • Environment or health
  • Develop communities
  • Microfinance
  • Encourage social responsibility
  • Promote education
  • Supporting human welfare
  • Support the poor and so on.

However, the function of an NGO in some areas may be, protecting the environment and promoting animal welfare.

In Nigeria, we have both local and international non-governmental organizations. They provide analysis and expertise, act as early warning systems, and aid in the monitoring and implementation of international agreements. Their relationship with United Nations (UN) offices and agencies varies depending on their goals, location, and the mandate of a specific institution.
