History

Mark Anumah Medical Mission (MAMM) is a non-governmental organization (CAC no. 53499), established in memory of Dr. MarkAnthony Anumah a paediatric surgeon who died on the 9th of September 2009.
The medical mission consists of two arms: the preventive arm and the curative arm.

The Curative Arm

This arm conducts major outreaches once a year. We have had successful medical outreaches in Kogi state since 2011 where we offer specialist diabetes and hypertension care, carrying out surgical procedures such as Prostatectomies, Thyroidectomies, Hernioraphies, Myomedomies, Hysterectomies, Vaginal wall repairs, Eye and Dental surgeries with successful outcomes.

So far we have offered healthcare to a total of 6,447 patients and carried out 616 surgeries.

The Preventive Arm

Mark Anumah Medical Mission (MAMM) in collaboration with the World Diabetes Foundation (WDF) carried out a diabetes prevention project in 20 secondary schools in the FCT, from 2012 to 2014. We worked with 100 teachers and about 3000 students. Our findings were quite worrisome: 50.1% of the teachers were found to be hypertensive, the highest blood pressure recorded was 240/120mmHg in an individual actively at work, and 45.9% of them with risk factors for diabetes. Among the students, some had a body mass index (BMI) between 30 and 40kg/m2, while 11.4% were hypertensive and 13.8% on their way to developing diabetes. These young people (children) are heading for big trouble in the near future if nothing is done.
We donated sporting equipment to each of the twenty (20) schools at the end of the project in order to encourage the children’s involvement in physical activities.
