Health is a Human Right

It is World Health Day, everyone!
This year’s theme, “Health for All”, serves as a reminder that healthcare should be accessible to everyone, regardless of their social or economic status. This is especially important for underserved women and children in Africa who continue to face significant barriers to accessing quality healthcare.
As a body passionate about maternal healthcare in Nigeria, we recognize the critical importance of providing women and children with the healthcare they need to lead healthy and productive lives. In Africa, maternal mortality rates remain unacceptably high, with thousands of women losing their lives each year due to preventable complications during pregnancy and childbirth. Access to healthcare services, such as prenatal care and skilled birth attendants, can make a significant difference in reducing these tragic deaths.
But it’s not just maternal health that’s at stake. Children in Africa also face a range of health challenges, including malnutrition, vaccine-preventable diseases, and malaria. By ensuring that women and children have access to quality healthcare, we can help prevent these illnesses and give children a better chance at reaching their full potential and becoming a better version of themselves.
As we celebrate World Health Day, let’s remember that health is a fundamental human right. It’s time to come together and take action to ensure that every woman and child in Nigeria and in Africa has access to the healthcare they need to live healthy, happy lives. When women are healthy, their families thrive, communities prosper and nations progress.
