Cervical Cancer Campaign
Our goal is to improve health and wellbeing of girls and women in Nigeria by reducing the prevalence of cervical cancer hence we launched the #SaveTheCervix campaign in 2015 to create awareness about cervical cancer, encourage women to go for cervical cancer screening and promote adolescents’ uptake of HPV vaccines.
Abagboro Village Outreach
LGHI is committed to giving vulnerable populations opportunity to lead healthy and productive lives. This has informed many of our outreaches to hard-to-reach rural communities. On the 6th of December 2008, we organized a village medical outreach at Abagboro village tagged “Malaria: Prevention and treatment”.
We educated the community members on how to prevent malaria which is a major disease plaguing our society (especially the rural dwellers who lives in farms) and also provided free medical check-up, consultations and medicines.
World Diabetes Day
On 14th November 2007, LGHI in collaboration with the Diabetes Association of Nigeria (DAN), Ile-Ife chapter held a public campaign to sensitize the community members about the prevalence, prevention, risk factors, signs, symptoms and management of diabetes. The health walk aimed at educating the community about lifestyle modifications that can prevent diabetes melitus and that aim was achieved.
