Hezekiah Health Foundation. started in 2012 as a Medical Team in Christian Teachers Foundation International (CTFI) and later become the Community Health Outreach Department later that year. The quest to reach more, do more and make mark in Maternal, Newborn & Child Health (MNCH) won CTFI the position of accredited NHIS Technical Facilitator for Community Health Insurance in 2014
It is at this point that BoTs resolved at a general meeting to further develop its community Health Department to a full fledge Foundation to address ever growing need to source resources towards an effective and efficient healthcare delivery at the grassroots. This was adopted at the Central Working Committee (CWC) in August 2015. Hence, (Hezekiah Health Foundation) was born.
