"Doing What Needs to be Done"

The only worthy answer to her sacrifice is to work to build a healthy Nigeria. We all have a role to play in making effective and efficient healthcare delivery a reality in the nation especially when political obstacles have to be overcome. The essential ingredient for this is a rebuilding of our national heathcare structure on the foundation of Community Nursing and Medicine.

The Foundation for African Cultural Heritage is hosting a Memorial Lecture on Tuesday 27th October to discuss this urgent issue in these turbulent times. This lecture will be given by Dr. M. C. Asuzu, retired Professor of Community Medicine and chaired by Dr. Minnie Oseji, Consultant Community Physician & National President of the Medical Women's Association of Nigeria.

This is a must-attend in light of the current national discourse for reforms. Register and participate. Nigeria needs you to Do What Needs to be Done

Memorial Lecture

We at FACH have chosen to describe them as "Doing What Needed to be Done." It took professional expertise to piece all the history and physical examination together to suspect and confirm the diagnosis of Ebola. It took courage and perseverance to withstand diplomatic pressure to release the patient prematurely. Whatever was needed in this process, Dr. Adadevoh got it done.

Many questions remain unanswered since her death on August 19, 2014 and even more questions unasked since Nigeria was declared Ebola-free in October 2014. How did she contract the virus since she insisted she did not ever touch the patient? Would she have escaped infection and death if Personal Protection Equipment or experimental drugs were immediately available? What would have happened if Mr. Sawyer had presented to another facility?

What is clear from the current COVID-19 epidemic in Nigeria is that fundamental changes in the structure of Nigeria's healthcare system are necessary if the nation is to stand any chance of meeting the health goals it has set for itself. That she may not have lived, served and died in vain, the only worthy memorial to Dr. Adadevoh would be an honest exposé of what needs to be done to safeguard the health of the country she gave her life for.

Thus FACH's inaugural Memorial Lecture which is in honour of Dr. Adadevoh is titled: "Doing What Needs to be Done: the only Worthy Memorial to Late Dr. Ameyo Stella Adadevoh." It will hold online on October 27, 2020 and registration details will be available soon. Join us and ensure "the labours of our heroes past shall never be in vain!!"
