Statement submitted by Centre for Public Health, a non-governmental organization in consultative status with the Economic and Social Council* 


 The Secretary-General has received the following statement, which is being circulated in accordance with paragraphs 36 and 37 of Economic and Social Council resolution 1996/31



Statement


 The Centre for Public Health is a national non-governmental not for profit organization in Nigeria, it is also registered in New York with 501c3 status. Centre for Public Health is an organization working to reduce the high mortality rates in the developing countries through advocacy, policy development/implementation and service deliveries. Centre for Public Health happily commends the 63rd session of the Commission on the Status of Women for adopting the theme Social protection systems, access to public services and sustainable infrastructures for gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls.  

 Centre for public health is on the fore front of raising national/global awareness about the Non-Communicable diseases (cancer, hypertension, diabetes, mental health). Increasing awareness of the preventive methods especially life style modification, increasing and enhancing access for people living with non-communicable diseases to non-communicable disease treatment and drugs.   Currently we are working to inform all women about cervical cancer, three hundred and twenty thousand (320,000) have been reached through the Door2Door initiative. 

Centre for Public Health is also providing cervical screening (Paps smear and Human papilloma virus test) to the women from 25 to 65 years. Increasing demand and provision for Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) vaccine. We also support women with cervical cancer to have a quality life through treatment and palliative care.   

We are also distributing non-communicable disease drugs to the people living with non-communicable diseases such as people with hypertension, diabetes through our health centres in the rural areas at no cost. These people have no access to non-communicable disease drugs.   

Despite the fact that high income countries have shown that with successful and effective implementation of comprehensive cervical cancer prevention and control, incidence and deaths from the disease can be dramatically reduced (World Health Organization). Yet there are no such programs in the low- and middle-income countries where the 90 per cent of the cervical cancer deaths occur. Most of the women in these low- and middle-income countries have no access to the cervical cancer services which could have saved their lives nor the palliative care to help them manage pain and safeguard their quality of life (WHO).   

On the foregoing we are advocating for inclusion of the Human Papilloma Virus vaccine in all the member state program of immunization, combined with compulsory cervical screening (Paps smear and Human Papilloma Virus test) for all women within the specified age range.   

We are also advocating for compulsory Community Based Social Health Insurance Program as a tool to ensure equal access to health services, accessible, affordable and available quality health care.

SUPPORT TO A WIDOW


Meet miss Glory Obi, an 11 year old daughter of a widow, Mrs. Ogochkwu Obi.

Glory, her age notwithstanding, looks a lot smaller in size than her real age.

Doctors say the reason she has retarded growth is as a result of a health condition known as Multiple Pituitary Hormone Deficiency and congenital heart disease.

Medical experts also say the condition is reversible with the necessary medications which must commence early in a child’s life before the full formation of his or her bones.

Unfortunately, Glory’s situation had taken too long to commence treatment due to financial constraints for her single mother.

Recently, an organization known as Jesus Christ is the way Ministry in Sweden got to know about her case through a Non-Governmental Organisation, Centre for Public Health Initiative, and sent down a donation of N81, 158 to the mother to help her start up a small scale business to help her cater for her family and also easily access the necessary drugs required to stimulate her daughter’s growth.

Mrs. Obi on receiving the cheque, thanked the donors for their magnanimity and recalled that money had been a major factor in her pursuit to get her daughter develop like other kids.
Dr. C’ Fine Okorochukwu the Director of Centre for Public Health Initiative explained that the hormonal problem the young girl is suffering from is easily corrected when detected early with treatment following immediately.

He said that even though Glory’s case is starting a bit late, he hopes there will be an improvement of her condition.

Little Glory, a vibrant and smart kid, even though shy with strangers, has the dream of becoming a medical doctor someday.
