Zainab Shinkafi-Bagudu: I am deeply honored to join the imPACT review of cancer control in Nigeria

Zainab Shinkafi-Bagudu shared on X:

“I am deeply honored to join a 14-member team appointed by the Honourable Minister of State and Social Welfare, Dr. Tunji Alausa, to work alongside Prof. Usman Aliyu Malami and other leaders in the space on the imPACT review of cancer control in Nigeria.

I have been saddled with the task of aggregating the country’s profile for cervical cancer screening, and the task ahead is monumental. However, with the expertise of experts from The National Institute for Cancer Research and Treatment, IAEA – International Atomic Energy Agency and World Health Organization I am optimistic we shall all deliver.

I am eager to collaborate with all stakeholders to improve cancer outcomes for our nation and would like to ask that if you are involved, or know of any ongoing cervical cancer screening projects in Nigeria, please send a message to my inbox.”
