NAFDAC partners with Monalisa Chinda's Uterine Fibroid project
The National Agency for Food and
Drug Administration and Control [NAFDAC] has partnered with Arise Monalisa
Foundation [AMF] to further safeguard the health of Nigerian women.
The Arise Monalisa Foundation has embarked on the Uterine
Fibroid Project, this year, aimed at creating awareness, sensitizing the
populace and sponsoring treatment of infected women across the country.
In a meeting which
held on Wednesday 14th January 2015 at NAFDAC's headquarters in Abuja, she said made this statement-"It is in giving our lives away
that we find meaning... We appreciate NAFDAC for this strategic partnership
as we look forward to propagating awareness of this fast spreading yet widely
neglected uterine fibroid, which has become very common among women due to
ignorance and stigmatization."
Dr. Paul Orhii, Director General, NAFDAC, also said
they are proud to partner with the Arise Monalisa Foundation
in mobilizing this timely project throughout the six geo-political zones in
Nigeria, and this also marks the flag-off of our projects for this year.
