Mobile Health Screening & Campaign on Cardiovascular Diseases (CVD):

INDIVIDUAL & CORPORATE SPONSORSHIP

 

We are happy to invite Organizations and Individuals to sponsor the on-going Nation-wide Diaspora Health Screening & Enlightenment Campaign on Cardiovascular Diseases.

 

This campaign is at the instance of Nigerian Diaspora Medical Professionals with Urah Singapore as the coordinator. It is part of the Diaspora “Give-Back” initiative.

 

You may be aware that cases of heart attack, stroke, hypertension, obesity, high cholesterol levels, and arthritis are on a daily rise with its attendant family trauma and lost of skilled manpower to the Nation. This awareness campaign is therefore timely as Nigeria cannot afford to continue to lose its work force to these preventable conditions.

 

The results from the just concluded two-week exercise is uncomfortably in agreement with the recent WHO’s assertion that 80% of deaths from Cardiovascular diseases occur in developing countries due to lack of awareness and resources for disease management. Over 80% of the participants who attended the screening had little or no idea about cardiovascular risk factors and over 50% of moderate/High risk participants did not even know they were at a risk.

 

It is in response to the urgent need to expand the Screening & Public enlightenment program to benefit more Nigerians that the Mobile Screening & Campaign Program has now been put in place to address this National concern. A number of Hospitals across the country have signed-on this program to give local logistic support to the campaign within their locations.

 

We therefore invite organizations and individuals with the heart for the community to help subsidize the cost of this campaign through sponsorship of the Mobile Health Screening & Enlightenment Campaign in any Local Government Council of choice.

 

Sponsorship benefits include free advert space & logo in Campaign Booklet, posters & banners; complements on radio announcements, logo or name on T-shirt, venue decoration and more.
