To improve childhood health through partnerships with health authorities and professionals, Sanofi has launched across the African continent the Paediatrics Initiative entitled “Healthy Children, Happy Children.”
In line with the launch, Sanofi Paediatric Initiative weekend in Lagos commissioned Paediatric Fun Centre at the Lagos University Teaching Hospital’s (LUTH) Paediatric Ward as its 1st Paediatric Initiative in Nigeria.
The Fun centre which also gave a facelift to the children’s ward of the hospital was part of the company’s determination to diversify and adapt its healthcare offer to young Nigerians and African patients at large.
Speaking at the commissioning of the Centre, the Chief Medical Director of the Hospital, Professor Akin Osibogun, who stressed the importance of social health, noted that the environment where a child is kept also contributes a lot to the health of the child.
Thanking Sanofi for coming from the rubbles to put a smile on the faces of the children and those yet unborn, Osibogun said the company has written their name in Gold as it concerns children’s health.
Represented by the Director of Administration, Mr. Ayo Olagunju, he pledged to ensure that the fun centre is maintained at all times.
On his part, Head of Paediatric, LUTH, Professor A. O AKINSULIE also noted the importance of the environment to children’s health. He commended the company for all their efforts at making the project a success.
