Under the ILERA4ALL (Good health for all) initiative, Nova Diamond Foundation has impacted on over five low-income communities through medical outreaches, particularly in the area of Malaria sensitization and treatment, Hepatitis B, Endometriosis awareness, Breast cancer awareness and

Part of the medical outreach recently carried out include malaria campaign, launched to protect the most vulnerable people- pregnant mothers

and children aged 0-5 against the morbid malaria infection.

During this year's WORLD MALARIA DAY, the Foundation collaborated with Primary Health Centres within the identified low-income communities in Lagos state, on an intensified mission to eradicate the health hazard.

They distributed free copies of Insecticide-treated Nets (ITN) and mosquito repellent creams to over 300 pregnant mothers and infants.

In retrospect, in 2021, the Foundation also reached out to over 1000 people during the breast cancer awareness campaign, in which over 100 women were screened for free, and up to 5 women got free mammograms.
