“Nothing is more important than a healthy living - and for women, this means total well-being.
“We’re here to provide support in our community through relevant discussions, hand-holding, peer-to-peer support, education and lifestyle guidance, experience sharing, nurturing, signposting, encouraging women to speak up, promoting mental health awareness, dealing with cultural biases, and pastoral care.
“We can also help find and provide sponsorship for women who qualify for contributions for diagnostic cost, treatments, or surgery where required on a case-to-case basis.”
During a 2-hours webinar at its inaugural launch in September 2021, the Network highlighted the challenges faced by women dealing with health issues, the need for a trusted support group, and the courage to speak out.
The webinar also highlighted alternative treatments for fibroid and lifestyle adjustments.
