Creating Access To Quality Healthcare

Who We Are

Brikama Society is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization founded in Washington State in 2009, and incorporated in 2011. It is our goal to   provide Brikama Health Center and its staff with basic medical equipment and supplies. In doing so, not only are we empowering the staff to provide proper prognosis and treatment but we also contribute to healthy communities.

Vision

Our vision is for Brikama Health Center to be a model for quality health care for Brikama and its surrounding population in The Gambia by the year 2022.

Why Brikama Health Center

Needs Assessment: The Brikama Society closely and actively interacts with the staff of Brikama Health Center and stakeholders in the region such as the Brikama Pupil Society.  In collaboration with the staff and stakeholders, we have been recently provided a 30-item list that is extremely needed to enhance the quality of healthcare delivery in the facility. These items include but not limited to alcohol based sanitizers, blood pressure machines, oxygen concentrators, wheel chairs, and suction machines.
