Seyi will travel to New York with ONE for the 2020 United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) and will join ONE in Nigeria to advocate for healthcare access for Nigerians.
ONE is a campaigning and advocacy organisation of over 9 million people taking action to end extreme poverty and preventable disease, 2.8 million of whom are in Nigeria.
The Big Brother housemates made presentations to a panel comprised of ONE Country Director, Serah Makka-Ugbabe and ONE Ambassadors Bisola and Waje about the importance of successfully implementing Huwe in every state in Nigeria. Huwe is a federal health programme aimed at delivering a minimum package of health services to the most vulnerable Nigerians through the primary healthcare system.
Through Make Naija Stronger, ONE is working with several coalition partners to ensure the successful implementation of Huwe throughout Nigeria. If properly implemented, HUWE will deliver much needed healthcare services to Nigerians, help reverse Nigeria’s poor health outcomes and move the country significantly closer to universal health coverage.
Seyi was selected based on the passionate case he made for Huwe implementation in his presentation.
