Zainab Shinkafi-Bagudu: Women in Healthcare Nigeria

Dr. Zainab Shinkafi-Bagudu, Chairperson First Ladies against Cancer Nigeria and Founder Medicaid Cancer Foundation, shared on LinkedIn:

“I’m thrilled to announce the launch of Women in Healthcare, a non-governmental organization, dedicated to empowering and connecting women across all healthcare specialties, encompassing both the public and private sectors.

Along with other professional women who have established worthy careers, networks and businesses in the health space, we aim to create a platform that fosters career and personal growth through educational meetings and mentorship programs. This brilliant idea is the brainchild of Dr Modupe Elebute-Odunsi , the CEO of Marcelle Ruth Cancer Centre & Specialist Hospital . She keeps coming up with laudable initiatives. Since the advent of her Marcelle Ruth just 3 years ago, over 3000 patients with cancer have accessed various care modalities at the center.

Now this. Imagine a space where:
• Medical professionals, nurses, pharmacists, physiotherapists, wellness practitioners, mental health specialists, health finance experts, and technologists can collaborate and learn from each other.
• Experienced leaders mentor emerging professionals, creating a circle of guidance and support.
• Workshops, webinars, and training sessions equip you with the latest knowledge and skills in leadership development, career advancement, and industry trends.

By joining forces, we can:
• Advocate for gender parity in healthcare leadership.
• Address gender-specific challenges in the healthcare industry.
• Share best practices and innovative solutions to improve healthcare delivery.
. Reduce brain drain /professional flight to high income countries.
