An Australian-based charity group, Onyebuchi Chris Ifediora, OCI, Foundation, is seeking partnership with the Anambra Broadcasting Service on its forthcoming health campaign titled “Arm Our Youths for Early Detection of Cancer and Reduction with Target of 2025.”
The Campaign is a health initiative of the OCI Foundation
that replaces its annual health symposium held in parts of Anambra State since 2017, with a wide-reaching sustainable cost-effective anti-breast and anti-cervical cancer programme designed to benefit most of Nigeria’s fifty million at-risk women in a timely, efficient and culturally-acceptable manner.
Briefing the Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of the Anambra Broadcasting Service Chief Uche Nworah on the programs and objectives during a courtesy call in Awka , its leader Lady Joy Ulasi said the Campaign which is a Harvard-endorsed, is being introduced across all Senior Secondary Schools in Nigeria as a way of tackling breast and cervical cancer.
She noted that OCI Foundation registered in both Nigeria and Australia, was founded in 2016 by Dr Chris Ifediora, an
Australian-based Nigerian Associate Professor of Medicine, and seeks to promote advance health, education social and public welfare, among every Nigerian and solicited the support and partnership of the station due to ensure wilder reach of audience to achieve the objective.
Receiving the group, the Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of the ABS, Chief Nworah, said the initiative is in line with the state government drive towards securing quality health for Ndi Anambra through the Anambra State Health Insurance Scheme ASHIA and assured them of support to their programmes.
