Nigeria Medical Student Association (NIMSA) Standing Committee on Policy Implementation (SCOPI), a public health-centric institute is on course to empower the residents of Mushin a suburb of Lagos, located in Lagos State on enhancement of life expectancy through a strategic medical outreach.


The outreach which is themed: “Long Life for All: The Role of Primary Health Care Services in Life Expectancy” is curated to enhance life expectancy through careful public and grass root engagement.


Life expectancy according NIMSA is dropping due to compromise in natural health process and gradually, unnatural health practice is becoming prevalence in the society. Medically, the human organism is designed for natural evolution that is to create, maintain and regenerate natural health and well-being permanently but if human ignore some important cues, the outcome lead to sad reality.

Speaking on the need for the outreach, the Team Lead/Liaison Officer Ms. Hafsat Iyabo Inuwa said the project is timely at a time when the world is battling different and serious health issues, most especially Covid-19, Lassa fever and the likes.

“We decided to start off with Mushin community because we believe in inclusiveness and most importantly these people are usually not the type that visits the hospital for regular check-out. Hence taking the outreach to them would help to enhance healthy life of the beneficiaries”, the team lead said.

Inuwa added that; “The event is slated to commence 10th of December, 2022 by 10a.m. at Akodu Street, off LUTH Gate, Mushin, Lagos State. We would be screening the residents on Tuberculosis and HIV/AID and additionally, there is plan to conduct free vaccination for Rota virus, Measles as well as Covid-19.”
