Speaking on the campaign, Victor Etuokwu, the Executive Director Retail Banking, Access Bank Plc, said:

“Globally, the month of October is dedicated to raising awareness for Breast Cancer, a major health issue affecting mainly women however, as an Institution with focus on women, we are expanding the scope to shine the spotlight on 5 salient health issues affecting women and their families.

The 2017 African Research and Population Centers, estimated 40,000 maternal deaths in Nigeria, making the country the second largest contributor to maternal mortality worldwide.

There is need for us to change the story one woman at a time and we at Access Bank have been moving the needle in our own way through our flagship product, the Maternal Health Service Support (MHSS).

Activities planned during the period include free health screening, health talk by specialists, fitness classes, fund raising to support these causes etc.
