WIN International Women’s Day Health Talk

The world comes together for International Women’s Day (IWD) on March 8 to celebrate women’s achievements and reinforce a commitment to women’s equality.

International Women’s Day is a day to celebrate the achievements of women all over the world. It is also a time for everyone to recommit to seeing a gender equitable world, where women are empowered and their capabilities harnessed for growth in all sectors.

This year Women Impacting Nigeria (WIN) presented a women’s empowerment and health talk at Tangerine Africa. The event was attended by 125 women.

Tangerine Africa is an organization that is focused on empowering people and businesses across Africa to live financially secure lives through world-class insurance & pensions solutions.

The health talk focused on cervical cancer and HPV and risk factors of cervical cancer, such as repeated HPV infection, oral contraceptives, diabetes, compromised immune system, unprotected sex, among others. Methods of preventing cervical cancer were also highlighted and the significance of the HPV vaccination.

Women Impacting Nigeria is on a mission to promote better life outcomes for women and girls in Nigeria. We are concerned about women’s health and we work to give women access to affordable and efficient healthcare in Nigeria.

We believe that women’s health and productivity in the workplace are inextricably linked. That is why we are committed to empowering women with the knowledge and resources to facilitate their overall wellness and health.
