GO on the ground in Nigeria: update from cofounder

As of May 2018, GO has an official presence on the ground in Nigeria, in partnership with Stanford University and the Clinton Health Access Initiative (CHAI). Joining GO on this project and to support TheGOMap is Paulette Ibeka from CHAI. Welcome Paulette!

Over the next year, we will test GO's Cancer Education Materials (CEM) at three teaching hospitals plus the National Hospital in Abuja, each with its own dedicated cancer center. These facilities are located all around the country and represent patients with a diverse demographic background. Post testing, GO's CEM will be translated into the four common Nigerian languages – Hausa, Yoruba, Igbo and pidgin English.

GO co-founder, Ami Bhatt, is leading our efforts in Nigeria. In February 2018, she visited three of the four Nigerian facilities along with Stanford colleagues. Ami hosted a GO call about her visit, discussing the state of cancer care in Nigeria, motivations behind our work there, and feedback from our Nigerian colleagues. Read the full transcript (attached).

As always, we thank you for making this work possible. Email Danna@globalonc.org if you have questions about the program or would like to engage in this effort.
