mass medical mission (mmm) is a non-profit, non-governmental, non-partisan charity focused primarily on preventive health care (also known as community medicine). It was founded on the 18th of October, 2004.
By convention, the organizations full name (mass medical mission) and its acronym (mmm) are always written in the lower case (small letters).
The mission is duly registered as an Incorporated Trustee in accordance with the laws of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. It strives to support the government to achieve its health indices objectives.
mmm is concerned with all the five levels of preventive health care (Primordial, Primary, Secondary, Tertiary and Quaternary prevention).
Our guiding philosophy at mmm is that prevention is better, cheaper and surer than cure. Therefore, any meaningful health plan in the third world should lay at least as much emphasis on preventive as on curative healthcare.
Cancer prevention is the core (hub) of all mmm programmes, because cancer is so multi-faceted that it is related to almost every other disease condition. Therefore, when properly understood, cancer prevention can serve as the fulcrum for all other efforts to enhance human health and wellbeing.
Our founder was inspired by the ethos of Christianity, and specifically the spirituality of the Anglican Communion.
Our Vision at mmm is To heal the world through community-focused preventive healthcare …. One Life, one Family, and one Community at a time!
