Promoting Women Health – Equipment Grants

The past decade has seen increasing awareness regarding the health needs of women in our society. Modernization and access to quality health facilities are increasingly being made available to women, even those from disadvantaged socio-economic backgrounds. Affordability is still a daunting barrier to access quality healthcare. Many families, particularly those with modest incomes, find it a challenge to finance their health care costs. Women’s health in particular takes a back seat compared to the needs of the rest of the family.
