Tunji Alausa: High-level Regional Seminar on Promoting Cancer Awareness and Advocacy Programmes

Tunji Alausa, State Minister for Health and Social Welfare of Nigeria, shared on X:

“Today marked the opening of the two-day High-level Regional Seminar on Promoting Cancer Awareness and Advocacy Programmes for the member states of the Organisation of Islamic cooperation (OIC).

The high-level seminar hosted by our steadfast First Lady, Her Excellency Senator Oluremi Tinubu of the Federal Republic of Nigeria aims to promote cancer awareness, advocacy and access to and the affordability of cancer treatment.

It features a range of topics and sessions designed to improve the capacity of technical partners as we support various governments and institutions. The First Lady’s gesture is a testament to an uncommon commitment and people-oriented leadership of His Excellency, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, GCFR who has passionately demonstrated a rare zeal to transform the health sector, especially cancer care through his Renewed Hope agenda.

Never in Nigeria’s history has a large variety of international, national, public and private stakeholders come together to address our collective challenges against cancer.

I extend my thanks and appreciation to the First Lady Senator Oluremi Tinubu, African First Ladies of the OIC Member States, Zainab Shinkafi-Bagudu, Chair of Nigeria’s First Ladies of Against Cancers (FLAC), Roche, JNC International Limited, and other key stakeholders for championing awareness creation and early detection, this will go a long way in increasing advocacy which will improve funding for cancer care at national and international levels.”
