The outreach which was conducted for women to help them know their health status also featured different sessions on health talks and staying healthy.
Taubah Falade, the Executive Director of HopeWin, who was represented by Fahm Basirat explained that the outreach was organized as parts of efforts to allay the fears of women who do not seek medical attention because of fear of the unknown and fear of paying exorbitant medical fees.
One of the medical practitioner in attendance, Dr. Mariam Oshodi, a Public Health Physician stressed that, “being healthy isn’t about being physically fit alone” adding that “taking drugs is not the solution to all illnesses”
Dr. Oshodi however advised the beneficiary to watch what they eat, avoid late night meals, take fruits and exercise regularly.
