History

What started as a small community development project in 2004 has now metamorphosed into a fully-fledged community-based organization using innovative cost-effective solutions making a real positive impact in the life of people at the grassroots, in rural communities.

Who we are

Sample image

Physicians for Social Justice, (PSJ), is a non-profit community-based development organization registered with the government of Nigeria. PSJ was founded in 2004 by a young physician seeking ways to put their intellectual resources, expertise, humanitarian ideals, and the ethics of their profession into practice through service to under served communities.
PSJ was born out of the conviction that physicians have crucial roles to play towards achieving the Millennium Development Goals related to health, and in promoting community health, and broader social justice for marginalized rural communities.

How we Work

PSJ uses innovative, practical, cost-effective solutions to reduce the burden of diseases and health challenges, while strengthening the capacities of marginalized rural communities to keep their women, children and young people healthy. PSJ aims to do as much as possible, with limited resources, to improve the health outcomes of people living in the most under served communities in rural Niger State. PSJ currently implements numerous community health projects in 51 rural communities in rural Niger State, northern Nigeria.
