The 'W' Initiative, a flagship women empowerment programme from Access Bank Plc, has announced plans for its 2019 'W' Health Month.

The 2017 African Research and Population Centers, estimated 40,000 maternal deaths in Nigeria, making the country the second largest contributor to maternal mortality worldwide. There is need for us to change the story one woman at a time and we at Access Bank have been moving the needle in our own way through our flagship product, the Maternal Health Service Support (MHSS).

Activities planned during the period include free health screenings, health talks by specialists, fitness classes, fundraising to support these causes, etc. The Health Month will wrap up with an advocacy walk tagged: 'Walk for Women’s Health' on October 26th, 2019," he added.
