" Being a Millennium Fellow affords me a grand platform to achieve my lifelong goal of helping people and contributing to the development of my community. This programme will afford me the opportunity to learn from experts in the field of Development and leading advocates of the SDGs which will build my capacity for advocacy and pursuit of equity for all especially as it relates to health. Interacting with other Fellows also grants me a network of brilliant minds who would be potential partners for incredible collaborations. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Sustainable Health Initiatives
The Sustainable Health Initiatives is an organisation focused on promoting good health and wellness for all by carrying out three fundamental works.
First, creating awareness on both communicable and non-communicable diseases. Second, advocating for and organising screening and vaccination exercises. Third, prompt referal to the appropriate health facilities for confirmatory tests and professional health management.
Our goal is to reach out to at least 2000 individuals through both our physical and online activities. On our social media platform, we will address one health topic every week to create awareness and demystify myths. In the near future, we hope to extend our work to all parts of the country.
