Patient Navigation Program

Our patient navigator program (PNP) is the first of its kind in Lagos. The PN is the number one advocate of the patient and helps her navigate through the scary and sometimes unpredictable medical system in Nigeria, by breaking down barriers to accessing treatment. Click here to learn more or call our PN line at 0817 000 1235.


Since 2009, Run For a Cure Africa has been fighting breast cancer in Nigeria. Operating a nonprofit in one of the most dynamic countries in the world has not been easy but it's been worth it. The last year has presented its own set of challenges but because of our partnerships and a great deal of faith and dedication we are #stillherestillrunning. Read about some of our key partners.
