ANF helps Nicaraguans in dire circumstances of poverty improve their access to quality healthcare and nutrition. Thanks to its collaborators, ANF is able to distribute muchneeded medicine, supplies, and medical equipment to its network of health centers across the country. This network encompasses primary care centers, dispensaries, rural clinics, public hospitals, specialized care centers for cancer patients, and psychiatric care units. Additionally, we support nutritional recovery programs for children under the age of five, provide health education to students in resource poor areas, and enhance the mobility of people with disabilities.
Why Health & Nutrition?
- In Nicaragua, 17% of children under the age of 5 are undergoing severe conditions of malnutrition. (ENDESA/INIDE Census 2012)
