Our Mission, Our Vision, Our Mantra, Our Ethics
My name is Dr. Ubiame Omavovwa Sophia,
but friends call me Omas. I am a founder at Public Health Partner (PHP) Limited. I have a pretty diverse but health – specific background as a Medical Doctor (M.B.B.S University of Lagos), a Public Health Practitioner (MPH Kings’ College London; UK Faculty of Public Health), a Public Health Researcher (Harvard School of Public Health) and a Project Manager (UK Prince 2 Certified).
I started Public Health Partner based on the simple principle of ‘Prevention is better than Cure’.
The process of attaining a medical cure can be both physically and psychologically a daunting task for most people. It is usually tedious and terrifying; often times it is a non – comprehensible encounter especially for the patient and other times it is a shockingly revealing experience even for the physician. The process of medically attaining a cure is not just time and money consuming, it is also thoroughly distracting. While I am of the opinion that getting a cure should surely be pertinent to an ill person, at Public Health Partner we are saying that preventing illness in the first place must indeed be paramount. These days, the quality of our lives, families, friendships and finances largely depend on our health. Yet, everything else apart from our health seem to take the better part of our lives – especially proactively that is.
This calls to mind the words of famous Buddhist leader, Dalai Lama XIV “Man surprised me most about humanity because he sacrifices his health in order to make money. Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived.”
Please indulge me because this is where we come in, to act as your objective partner in the ‘creation’ cum ‘maintenance’ of health. At Public Health Partner we ultimately promise to save you loads of money, tons of time and the unequivocal loss of life that is closely associated to a huge gap in our predominantly reactive, inadequately funded, wrongly monetized health care sector. Through routine organized healthcare services we plan – develop and implement, monitor and evaluate a ‘healthful’ lifestyle with you. All we are saying is ‘let us help you prevent unnecessary diseases, disabilities, destitution and death..simply because prevention is better than cure.
“It is a shame for a person to die from a disease that is curable, but the real tragedy is to die from one that is preventable” – Dr. Ubiame Omas.
To seek in all our endeavors to promote good health and encourage healthy behavior in people. Protect populations against sicknesses and diseases. Prevent avoidable deaths, disabilities and destitution through the formation of effective ‘Partnerships in Health’, working with individuals or communities, private or public sectors, governmental or non governmental organizations.
To have local populations in our communities living optimally ‘healthful’ lives, simple!
For the fear of God, the love of mankind and the preservation of public health
