The W Initiative, a flagship women empowerment programme from Access Bank Plc, has announced plans for its 2019 W Health Month aimed at improving community awareness on health issues that affect women and their families by bridging knowledge gap, providing access to health checks and encouraging healthy lifestyle habits. 

Slated to run all through the month of October, the W Health Month will focus on key areas such as infertility, endometriosis, vesicovaginal fistula (VVF), cancer, maternal and neo-natal mortality. 

Speaking on the campaign, Ayona Trimnell, the Coordinator ‘W’ initiative, Access Bank Plc, said: “Globally, the month of October is dedicated to raising awareness for Breast Cancer, a major health issue affecting mainly women.

“However, as an Institution with focus on women, we are expanding the scope to shine the spotlight on 5 salient health issues affecting women and their families. The 2017 African Research and Population Centers, estimated 40,000 maternal deaths in Nigeria, making the country the second largest contributor to maternal mortality worldwide.

“There is need for us to change the story one woman at a time and we at Access Bank have been moving the needle in our own way through our flagship product, the Maternal Health Service Support (MHSS).
