Accessing Health care in Mbano, Imo state, Nigeria: The role of the MNA (USA) Diasporic Network

I share my notes from research fieldwork investigating health care in Mbano local government area in Imo state, Nigeria, and how this rural community is turning globalisation – out migration of its labour force to its benefit through the medical mission facilitated by the Mbano National Assembly (MNA), a diasporic network of Mbano indigenes living in USA. I shed some light on the community’s health profile, what “access” and “barriers” to health care means in this community, the medical mission landscape and some of MNA’s work. Mbano is host to the state’s Tertiary teaching hospital, a pre 1960s jointly owned secondary health care facility and numerous primary health care centres.
