Stop stigmatising infertile women - Aisha Buhari

Nigeria’s First Lady Aisha Muhammadu Buhari has urged Africans to change their perception of women’s infertility as an abnormal condition and also desist from attaching stigma to women having the condition.

She said infertility can be addressed through medical healthcare and modern science.

Aisha spoke in Accra, Ghana on Tuesday, where she was an Ambassador and Special Guest of Honour at the Sixth Edition of the “MERCK AFRICA – ASIA LUMINARY/ MORE THAN A MOTHER INITIATIVE conference for African First Ladies.

The initiative, which was co-chaired, by Rebecca Akufo-Addo, the First Lady of Ghana and Dr. Rasha Kelej, CEO of Merck Foundation was attended by President Nana Akufo-Addo of Ghana.
