Access Bank through the W Initiative, has partnered Optimal Cancer Care Foundation to provide free breast and cervical screening for 1,000 women in Lagos State.
The initiative, which is the home of everything Access Bank has to offer women, is dedicated to Inspiring, Connecting and Empowering women in business; women and family; as well as young professional women.
At the core of the bank’s business is providing opportunities to access affordable healthcare services amongst other offerings available to women.
Speaking at the launch, Executive Director, Retail Banking Division, Victor Etuokwu, said: “Early detection opens doors to timely care and treatment. While we do everything to provide bespoke financial services to our customers, we also harness every opportunity to make other solutions available. Their businesses, health and career are of utmost priority to us. Hence, the importance of this partnership.”
The initiative is a five-month drive which started in June and will run till October 2021. The bank believes that, through this initiative, breast and cervical cancer related issues will be detected when it is most treatable thereby mitigating the risks of the condition.
