For Nigerians to defeat non communicable diseases and live long, they must avoid excessive or continuous intake of smoked fish, roasted corn, roasted plantain and other enticing, but unhealthy foods, the Managing Director, Integrated Medical Centre, Dr. Damilola Familoni has said.
She notes that though these were hard to resist delicacies for Nigerians, they were ladened with cancer causing effects and other disease risk factors which manifests much later in life, stressing that one of the surest prevention methods against cancer, diabetes, hypertension and obesity was adopting a healthy lifestyle which includes healthy living.
Speaking at the celebration of AVON Health Management Organisation at Three, and the launch of its online service in Lagos, she said Nigerians must be educated on what types of foods to be avoided or eaten, as education was key to tackling the rising health indices in the country. “For instance, anyone with Blood type O has no reason eating plantain at all,” she adds.
According to her, “disease burden was becoming prominent in Nigeria, hence it was best to adopt healthcare provision that would make them spend less while getting adequate and appropriate diagnosis, treatment and management of their various health issues.
“All these can’t be addressed by out-of-pocket health provision as majority of Nigerians are living below the poverty line and are unable to afford healthcare. But with health insurance, it is easier to maximally take advantage of healthcare provision. Organisations, governments and individuals should adopt this model if we must reduce incidence of health issues in the country,” Familoni added.
Meanwhile, the Chief Executive Officer, AVON HMO, Mrs. Adesimbo Ukiri said with the launch of the online service, Nigerians can now buy and enroll to health plans from the organisation’s website via their mobile phones, laptops and tablets.
She said: “When we started three years ago, our belief was that Nigerians from all walks of life should be able to access good quality healthcare services when they need it, without financial constraint leading to unnecessary complications and fatalities.
“With our health plans starting as low as N15,000 per year, we have indeed brought quality healthcare services to the average Nigerian. Subscription to an Avon HMO plan means that whenever a covered ill health or accident occurs, the state of one’s finances won’t matter as Avon HMO oversees the healthcare service delivery and foots the bill. By giving people the ability to buy and subscribe online via mobile phones and other devices, we are bringing convenient and affordable healthcare services to everyone.”
She sad with the innovation, the current three to four per cent of Nigerians using health insurance will increase.

A Nigerian doctor, Ogoo Ekete has been hailed after helping a pregnant woman in labour deliver her baby while traveling to the village in Enugu state.
According to Seun Oloketuyi, the delivery was done in a tricycle a.k.a ‘Keke Napep’ with the aid of a torchlight from a mobile phone.
Read the full details as shared by Seun Oloketuyi
Ogoo Ekete is a young Medical Doctor. But that’s not all. She is also wife to my colleague, Fred, an Engineer in our Networks Department. Still that’s not all. On New Year Day, God used Dr. Ogoo to accomplish a feat, which led to the birth of a potential leader of tomorrow and saved the life of his mother. Now, that’s just it, but then there’s a story behind the story. Come with me…
Traveling in the village with her hubby and children, to visit her sister, their car was flagged down by a desperate and anxious young man, whose wife was in labor at the LGA health centre (Iji Nike Cottage Hospital, Near Enugu East Development Centre Nkwo Nike) without any staff at work. Jesus!
In less than 5 minutes, Dr. Ogoo, a kind and blessed daughter of Zion, set up a mobile hospital in the “keke” that brought in the woman, and went into active delivery mode. Chai!
Fred’s sister-in-law, whom they were going to visit and whose house was right opposite the Health Centre, played the midwife and used the torchlight in Fred’s mobile phone to provide the needed illumination.
To the glory of almighty God, at 6:30 pm 1/1/16, she very meticulously and successfully delivered the woman of a bouncing baby boy. Praise the Lord somebody!
Let us thank God for the life of the baby and her mother. Only God knows what their fate would have been, had Dr. Ogoo hadn’t happened around at the time, and wasn’t spirit-led to render a selfless service according her Hippocratic Oath.
Please join me to celebrate this wonderful woman, this blessed medical doctor, this humanitarian, this instrument of God, Dr. Ogoo Ekete. She will rise and rise and rise to the top of her chosen career, in Jesus’ name! She will find favor from men and women and, more importantly, from almighty God.
Immense thanks to Fred, a great chap and bloody good Engineer, the husband, who didn’t first start thinking of possible deleterious consequences and, therefore, encouraged and supported his wife to do the great deed
