Welcome to The MENTOR Initiative, a discrete and agile humanitarian organisation
purpose built to relieve human suffering from tropical diseases.

We act in some of the world’s most austere and vulnerable communities, who are often devastated and forgotten.
Regardless of race, creed or nationality, MENTOR strives to deliver disease control to populations at greatest risk of suffering and death.
Our first and last considerations are the needs of the people we serve.

The MENTOR Initiative saves lives in emergencies through tropical disease control and then stays to help people recover from crisis with dignity,
working side by side with communities, health workers and health authorities to leave a lasting impact.

Programme Highlights

In Borno State, Nigeria, malaria is the number one cause of morbidity and mortality, with peak disease burden during and immediately following the rainy season. Reported cases of malaria in Borno State increased by almost 10% from 279,389 in 2019 to 307,175 in 2020. While endemic, it is also clear from that malaria morbidity is most significantly experienced during the rainy season from July-September in Borno State. Fresh surface water from rainfall creates breeding grounds for the anopheles malaria vector, causing these spikes in recorded malaria rates. Transmission continues to increase annually, highlighting the urgent need for intervention.
