PATVIV HEALTHCARE COMPANY LIMITED.
PATVIV HEALTHCARE COMPANY LIMITED, aims to promote a health care center that specializes on Adolescent, Family and Reproductive health/behaviors in Nigeria. Dr. Mrs Dumebi Nwosu, the Founder/Medical Director, Started the organization in 2010, after she completed a course on Reproductive and Family Health in the University College hospital (U.C.H) Ibadan. The desire to fight diseases that women take for granted and other health issues facing women, the girl child and families in our environment was a motivating factor to Dr. Mrs Dumebi Nwosu when she established.
Testimony of The Vision Carrier
Dr. Dumebi was always going to market places, churches, schools, women groups, town meetings creating awareness on reproductive and family health issues that concerns women and the girl child, like cancers, STDs , rape and other health related issues . At first it was not an easy task because she had to do it all alone but with time and the responses she got from concerned individuals, she mustered courage to continue with the vision and today she has a registered and functioning health care company that proffers solution to the needs of women and the girl child in our society.
As a medical doctor it is professional to feel responsible for caring for people’s health, more to this is the fact that she had lost 3 of her family members to cancer, her mother, her aunt and her cousin. This experience was a challenging one for her ,hence the burning desire to find a lasting solution to the chronic diseases (Cancer) that takes the life of those we love and care about, gave birth to the idea of creating awareness on reproductive and family health issues, providing sustainable health programs and preventive approaches / measures towards alleviating the diseases concerned.
We had a lot of challenges, among these is gender issues where women could not open up to male doctors and health workers, this prompted the establishment of the “woman to woman”clinic, an Initiative that specifically attend to the rising need to alleviate the health issues that women faces in our society and to continue, to promote the health of the Girl Child and the Woman. Secondly the issue of Gender can be addressed, then women can be free and comfortable with our female doctors and female health workers for examination ,preventive care and treatment.

Woman to Woman Clinic, School Health Programs, Health Talks, Screening Exercise, Training, Vaccination. We aim to reduce the risk of having our loved ones die of Cancer, STD s and other health related issues in women, the girl child and the family at large.
