GMD/CEO of Access Bank Plc, Herbert Wigwe has said that the Bank would continue to support more women in their quest for motherhood and a healthy lifestyle.
According to him in a statement made available to this newspaper, the Bank, under its W initiative, introduced the Maternal Health Service Support (MHSS) Programme, a discounted loan that supports medical procedures for women in hospitals in Nigeria and abroad. This programme provides financing support for a wide range of medical procedures including IVF treatment, natal care, Fibroid treatment, dental care, Hysterectomy and select surgeries.
“For Access Bank, helping women overcome financial barriers while supporting them in their quest for health and motherhood is not just a business proposition, it is in fact an obligation to African women,” he said.
Wigwe said, “Through this service, we have been able to support so many women in their quest for motherhood and a healthy life. In June, 2015, we joyfully welcomed the 1st baby conceived through an IVF procedure financed under MHSS programme. The proud parents welcomed a baby boy after a successful IVF cycle.”
To underscore our commitment to improving the health of women, Access Bank partnered with reputable maternal focused organisations such as the Association for Fertility and Reproductive Health (AFRH), The Audrey Pack and several Maternity clinics nationwide to ensure a wider reach of the service to Women across the Nigeria.
