EGYPT – Organon, a global health care company dedicated to making a world of difference for women, has launched a new chapter in Egypt.
Women’s health is being transformed and further prioritized with the launch of Organon, the only global company of its size focused on women’s health.
This launch will not only transform women’s healthcare, but will also create over 400 job opportunities across Middle East, North Africa and Turkey (MENAT). Organon aims to apply their expertise, products and technology in women-related conditions to influence change in the region and empower women to take charge of their health to live better lives.
“As the MENAT region continues to grow and is expected to expand further in the coming years, we recognize the need to focus on women-specific health conditions and treatments that impact the everyday life of women,” Organon Managing Director, Rame Koussa, recounts.
With a vision to create a better and healthier every day for every woman by putting women at the center of everything Organon does, the Jersey City based company, takes a broad view of women’s health, with the goal of expanding beyond reproductive health to help address the conditions that are unique to women, but also conditions that disproportionately affect women or have an especially heavy burden on them.
The Organon executive leadership team rang the opening bell at the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) to mark the first day of active trading. Recognizing the need to listen to and act on women’s experiences to address the challenges in women’s health, Organon gathered voices from around the world to create the “Wall of Voices,” a multimedia installation outside of the NYSE sharing powerful perspectives, voices and images.
Dr. Amira Tahio, Maternal and Child Health Consultant and Former Director for African Center for Women’s Health Services, Egypt is hopeful about Organon’s presence in the market as expressed in her statement.
“I’d like to take this opportunity to spot the light on our aim, to see women in Egypt enjoy a health infancy with no gender gap in morbidities and mortality. A health adolescent life free from violence and genital mutilation. Fertility by choice and not by chance. A healthy reproductive life with safe outcomes to both mothers and their babies. A health sexual life, free from sexual transmitted diseases including HIV/AIDS in addition to prevention of cancer of the cervix. Lastly but not the least, a healthy active reproductive life in combatting breast cancer and its health consequences.”
From a developmental perspective, Mahira Hassan, CSR/Sustainability and Development Expert Consultant said, “To women of all ages and nations wanting to be heard and seen, you are important, your psychological wellbeing can drive tons of health issues. Healthy women are the cornerstone of healthy societies. You are the future.” Women everywhere are invited to take the “microphone” to add their voice to the digital “Wall of Voices.”
