As part of their activities to create awareness about Breast Cancer, Nigeria’s fastest growing HMO, Leadway Health is giving out 100 free mammograms to women aged 40 and above across the country.
Commenting on the initiative, Dr Tokunbo Alli, Chief Executive Officer, Leadway Health, said, “It’s alarming to know that breast cancer is currently one of the most prevalent critical illnesses among women – with 2.3 million cases recorded worldwide and 685,000 deaths in 2020. We also know that early detection is imperative in the successful diagnosis and treatment of this disease; hence, we are poised to provide facilities for screening through selected health centers across Nigeria.
“This year’s theme, “Rise”, is a clarion call for all to do more and support as many women as possible, hence the critical driving force for this exercise.”
