Photos: 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.

After 8 years of supporting major autism campaign causes, funding education for the less privileged, organizing charitable visits to orphanages and prisons amongst others, 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.


Speaking during the meeting which held on Wednesday 14th January 2015 at NAFDAC's headquarters in Abuja, Monalisa Chinda, multi-gifted actress and Founder of AMF said, "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."

According to Dr. Paul Orhii, Director General, NAFDAC, "We 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."

quite the novel idea as many women in nigeria are afflicted by this disease. however, uterine fibriods cannot be classified as an infection.

If only the intention is pure and right........it's a good initiative because it will create more awareness for the female populace but hope it's a prog to steal the shine from Stephanie Okereke VVVF NO which I know is a successful one. Ms China, is your intention pure?

I'm not sure what she intends to achieve with the project. Firstly, uterine fibroids are not infective. One out of four women has unterine fibroids especially if black.

Women do not die from fibroids, yes their periods can be heavy but most of them can be easily treated.

This is however different to debilitating conditions like vesico-vaginal fistula (VVF). I think she should do something else like ovarian cancer awareness, which doesn't show until it's too late or awareness for women who've gone through menopause and bleed, and who need to have endometrial cancer ruled out first.

#just saying!

Medicine must have changed since the last time I graduated. How do you get infected with fibroids? I thought they were growths that are yet to be linked to any organism

Munachimso said...

Thank you. I was about to say that. This is not an infection bikonu

This has the entirely laudable aim of preventing and early detection of fibroid in women. well done girl.

Anonymous said...

This doesn't make sense- a project against uterine fibroids??? 25% of women have them. They are not an "infection". Most are symptomatic and even when there are complications they are hardly life threatening but treatable with surgery or medications. Efforts should be focused on diseases that have worse outcomes if not detected early such as breast cancer or other diseases of public health importance. I am disappointed that NAFDAC went along with this. Is there no single soul in NAFDAC that is knowledgeable on public health matters? Nawa o.

Kudos to Monalisa, I hail you.
I'm still to see what Omotola is doing with her exposure...re Time Magazine. How has she drawn the international community to a particular cause. She was put on an international platform with Time Mag, recently flaunting some paper from..whia? Amnesty International ?. So which international players, donors, philanthropists has she brought their attention to some particular problem plaguing..let's say... the girl child, females, or even the mentally sick who are being castigated as witches & wizards due to ignorance.
What I saw this January was she & her hubby giving out little handouts thereabouts. Good, but like I said bc of the platform which she's purportedly operating on, with some hailing her blindly, she can do better, if not way better.
Her PR team should take note.
For a better world.

"sponsoring treatment of affected women.." and not "infected women..". Uterine fibroid isn't an 'infection'. Just saying...
Good project; kudos to Monalisa.
