SOGON calls for renewed attention on women’s health
THE Society of Gynaecology and Obstetrics of Nigeria (SOGON) has called for renewed national attention on the wide range of women’s health concerns begging for renewed and increased attention.
President of SOGON, Prof. Joseph Brian-D Adinma, made this call at the official opening ceremony of the Society’s 9th International Congress.
SOGON, he stressed, would continue to work in the coming years to rededicate itself to the task of reducing the rate of maternal mobility and mortality and achieving the Millennium Development Goals 4 and 5 in Nigeria.
He said: ‘“The new SOGON focuses on feasibility and impact unto our people and has striven to achieve this through a painstaking implementation of activities hinged on the provisions of the six thematic areas of our 2013-2017 five year.”
He pledged the support of the society to the Minister of Health to perform in such a way that no other minister has ever performed.
He said the Society had commenced radio enlightenment program on women’s health, starting with radio stations in various states of Nigeria.
He called on members to move towards a renewed vigour and commitment to the actualization of the ideals and the very essence of the founding members of the members.
