Launch event | Female Genital Schistosomiasis Society of Nigeria
Nigerian Female Genital Schistosomiasis (FGS) Network is a group created in October 2021 to link up the FGS Scholars from the 2021 Geneva learning workshop in Nigeria and those lectured by the Scholars with the aim of creating awareness about FGS. It has grown to cut across the six geo-political zones, some states and Local Government Authorities (LGAs) in Nigeria and it has been registered with Nigerian Corporate Affairs Commission as Female Genital Schistosomiasis Society of Nigeria.
The Female Genital Schistosomiasis Society of Nigeria has the mission of eliminating FGS and related infectious diseases and cancers in Nigeria and beyond. The launch day will include the leadership team of professionals dedicated to tackling FGS in Nigeria. They will share their vision, model, and experiences on how they are doing that.
