Join [R]evolve Initiative in Benin City Nigeria,as we carry out Free Hepatitis B virus
screening and also to raise awareness and understanding of Hepatitis B and C, especially amongs youths;on 28th July 2011 [WORLD HEPATITIS DAY]
This Month our Free screening and awareness campaign location is Niger College, a mixed secondary school in Benin City Nigeria, West Africa. [R]evolvewas born out of a desire to see people of all ages, (youths especially) live
productive, purposeful and healthy lives. If we can learn to do the right things
most of the time and remove the wrong things, and our wrong doings from our
lives and pass this to the next generation, there is no doubt that people will begin to see and act in better
ways of life. [R]evolve Initiative as an organization aims to challenge the mind of the Nigerian youth,
so as to enable them initiate a positive paradigm shift and come out of their
shells, helping each other to cause the much needed change and make a
difference in our society
To live a healthy life involves finding a physical, social, psychological and spiritual balance; where ailments that are seemingly prevalent and sometimes hereditary can be prevented or avoided through making small regular
decisions and taking positive actions on diet, lifestyle, health, exercise, including
physical, mental, and spiritual balance.
intentionally has to do with giving a different meaning to life, other than what our society, family, friends and government gives to us---hardship, low self esteem, political and religious intolerance…..these and many more are prevalent in our society, but we can change the state of things, by changing ourselves first. A lot of focus
is on the youth and the young at heart, because there are a lot of potentials
hidden within them…..as well as vices.
This year [R]evolve Initiative is focusing on preventive health, specifically
hepatitis and HIV/AIDS. In this second half of the year, we will be embarking on a Hepatitis--prevention
campaign amongst youths, especially those in secondary schools. Hepatitis,
though has not received as much publicity as HIV/AIDS, but is equally deadly.
Hepatitis can affect anyone, no matter the age or sex and is prevalent in our society, where
the best form of prevention is ignorance. Thegood part of hepatitis is that it is preventable and the earlier an infection
is detected, the better, as it can be efficiently managed.
