Despite the global advancement of medicine, the state of health care in Nigeria remains dire and women are particularly disadvantaged. This month, Access Bank W Initiative is launching the ‘W Health Month’ to raise awareness, advocacy, and support for health issues, including cancer, which gravely affects the Nigerian woman.
To do this we have organized a series of awareness activities and programs that elucidate on 5 health issues- Infertility, Endometriosis, VVF, Cancer, Maternal and Neonatal Mortality. The final leg of the campaign will round off with the Walk for Women’s Health taking place on the 26th of October 2019 where Nigerians, men and women alike will be walking in support.
As Nigerians, we all owe it to ourselves to raise awareness, take preventive measures and support women who are facing these issues alone. After all, women can only be fully empowered when their health is not at risk. Remember health is wealth!
We all have women in our lives, let us play our parts.
