I work for St Victoria Specialists Hospital from inception.
My official title is Matron, as well as Director My responsibilities are Nursing administration, supervision of subordinates as well as social advocacy and impact services.
In 2018, I coordinated a project on the Sociocultural factors affecting the utilisation of Antenatal Clinic amongst Teenage mothers in our community. It was a good success.
Currently, the project needs to be expanded to accommodate more Teenage mothers. This is Maternal and Child Health research. I am also looking for partnership / sponsorship for research studies on Health Promotion and Cancer. Victoria Beacons Initiative was created in 2018, having completed a PhD degree and in order to fulfil the long time desire of engaging in research and reaching out to my community. So far, we have been able to make progress. Follow us on LinkedIn for updates.
Despite the challenging operating environment, we have focused on responding in our community to enable them stay healthy post pandemic. We are committed to our mission & vision statement. We also enabled welfare packages for some of the less - privileged women in our community. We are looking forward to the recovery of all our diverted medical equipment meant for St Victoria Specialists Hospital, Ife. Now the urgency for the focus in 2022 on Health, gender issues and human rights takes significance given the women/girls population and the vulnerability they face.CEO, Victoria Beacons Initiative
