i4life

i4Life is a group of volunteer health professionals who came together in 2009 to organise immunisation programmes and child health clinics for under 5s in the poorer countries of the world and to provide support to existing charities in emergency situations. Currently our work is focused in Zambia where we provide nutrition clinics and primary healthcare services to an urban township called Linda Compound which is based on the outskirts of Lusaka and has a population of approximately 60.000. With the support of our partnership organisations we also provide outreach clinics to remote areas of Zambia.

Immunisation

Immunisation is one of the world’s most powerful tools for health and is a simple, safe and effective way of protecting against certain diseases, which we may take for granted. In developing countries where vaccines are not readily available, diseases such as measles, particularly in malnourished children, can cause serious complications and death.

Nutrition

Malnutrition isn’t just a case of lack of food but rather lack of appropriate food. Malnutrition during the first two years of a child’s life can have serious short and long term irreversible implications for health and wellbeing. Undernutrition in women of child-bearing age has a direct relation to children born underweight, and stunting in the under 5 population. In Zambia poverty is relentlessly high with fifty four percent of Zambians living on less than EUR €1.75 a day.

Clinic

In October 2022. i4Life in partnership with the Ministry of Health Zambia took over management of Neri Primary Health Care Centre to provide Primary Health Care services to the Linda community. This Primary Health Care Centre is located in Linda Compound within the Lusaka District. This clinic serves a catchment area of nearly 70,000 people with varying levels of impoverishment. This Primary Care Centre currently serves as a centre of excellence for primary care within Linda compound.
