Ask The Paediatricians Foundation started as an online Facebook Group on the 20th July 2015 by Dr Gbemisola Boyede, Consultant Paediatrician at the Lagos University Teaching Hospital, Idiaraba Lagos. ATP is a Nigerian non-governmental organization, connecting medical professionals and volunteers to provide quality child health education to parents and free diagnostic and treatment to children in most vulnerable areas in Nigeria.
Ask The Paediatricians Foundation now has four major areas of focus:
1) Health education online forum via the Facebook Group, Page, Website and mobile app
2) Community Medical Outreaches
3) Health Seminars and Training Workshop for Healthcare professionals and parents and
4) Support for Orphans and Vulnerable children.
The vision of Ask The Paediatricians Foundation is to promote good health and well-being of children globally; especially in Nigeria and Africa in keeping with the Sustainable Development Goal 3 by promoting child health intelligence of caregivers of children through the agency of evidenced-based health education, information, training, and community medical outreaches.
Daily, Ask The Paediatricians Foundation is impacting the lives of thousands of children and family globally through the promotion of child healthcare and intelligence and now as winners of the 2019 edition of the Nominate a Charity contest by Nimbus Media Ltd, they can do this on a larger scale.
