Challenge

Breast & Cervical Cancers are responsible for 50.3 percent of all cancers in Nigeria. Only about 2.4% of Anambra residents were covered by health insurance in 2018, because many residents were not able to pay and enroll into the State's own health insurance scheme. The indigent women lacked access to quality health services, insurance coverage for routine and catastrophic health costs in Covid-19 world. Gender stereotypes also limited their ability to access healthcare services.

Solution

ASA Women USA Cancer Coalition, Community Adoption Partnership Project Program will support the provisions for standard health services for the adopted indigent cancer and maternal health patients from a gender perspective & provide health insurance premium coverage in order to respond to the pandemic and also support a community's establishment of a Cancer diagnostic & research Centre, in order to reduce the burden of cancer in Nigeria

Long-Term Impact

ASA Women USA Cancer Coalition, Community Adoption Partnership Project Program will enable the indigent women to easily access healthcare, be healthier, reduce avoidable deaths and this will promote economic productivity in the State and the Nation at Large. Our goal is to enroll over 100 indigent women a year in the State's Health Insurance Scheme, while supporting a community's establishment of a cancer diagnostic & research Centre in Anambra State-Nigeria
