Inspired by her eye-opening family trip to Sylhet, Bangladesh, a University of Warwick student is motivated to have a lasting influence on women’s health in the area.

Najeyah Ahmed was shocked by the conspicuous lack of healthcare facilities in Sylhet in 2019, especially for young moms.

Witnessing pregnant girls struggling with limited access to formal education and healthcare, she resolved to address these issues by spearheading the construction of a women’s health clinic.

Najeyah highlighted reports of unnecessary ’emergency caesareans’ imposed on these women, making their money problems and health worries worse.

Determined to effect change, Najeyah plans to return to Sylhet this summer for a two-month period, starting an educational program aimed at promoting the use of sanitary products and empowering women with informed choices about childbirth.

The envisioned program will evolve into free classes at a permanent health clinic, with formal training for local midwives.

Leveraging her network and resources, Najeyah aims to organise fundraising events and engage Warwick Medical School students in clinical practice, encouraging their participation in volunteer-led health education programmes.
