Blue Gate Public Health Promotion Initiative
We are working with partners to find new ways of promoting the health of the public. We pioneer and advance creative, high-impact solutions. We do this by conducting research that helps to inform and influence decision-makers; building platforms and networks that connect people and ideas; by providing direct support to local change agents; and combining these approaches to deliver meaningful and lasting results.
We also contribute to public health by improving the health outcomes in Nigeria by ensuring that the policies reflect the realities in our communities especially at the grassroots.
We champion the health of all people and communities by strengthen the public health profession with ability influence policies to improve the public's health.
Blue Gate Initiative through partnership with other national and international organizations provides public health services, capacity building and empowerment for women, adolescents, key and vulnerable populations which include but not limited to LGBT, female sex workers, inmates and ex-inmates and people with disabilities. We also provide psychosocial support, medical and legal services for LGBT, rape survivors and human right defenders. We work with policy makers in developing evidence-based health promoting policy and adequate resource allocation for implementation including increasing oversight functions of the legislators to health facilities and communities.
