Public Petition Campaign on Access to Healthcare for poor Women & Girls Launched

Following lack of access to affordable and quality healthcare for millions of Nigerians, SERAP in 2007 launched a public petition campaign on access to healthcare for poor women and children in Nigeria, a campaign that has received extensive media coverage and significant public support.

The public petition campaign aims to put pressure on President Yar’Adua government to initiate and submit an executive bill on universal access to healthcare for poor women and children in Nigeria to the National Assembly.

The public petition campaign has received significant support, including from Amnesty International (Netherlands); Messrs Femi Falana, President, West African Bar Association (WABA); Olisa Agbakoba, SAN, and former President, Nigerian Bar Association (NBA); International Commission of Jurists (ICJ-Kenya); and the International Federation of Women Lawyers-Nigeria (FIDA).
