Who We Are
MARCH IS ENDOMETRIOSIS AWARENESS MONTH
We shine a bright light on Endometriosis during the month of March. This is important to generate awareness and to show support to those affected by this debilitating disease.
It allows us and the rest of the world to advocate for more research and better treatment options for Endometriosis – which has been categorised as one of the top ten most chronic diseases worldwide and which is also one of the top three causes of infertility.
Too many women suffer in silence. Our girls and women deserve better – and with your help, they can achieve it.
Friday March 11th, is Wear Yellow For Endo Day! So wear yellow, take a photo and share online using the hashtag #EndoDayJA.
B.A.S.E @ SCHOOL
Teenagers are especially susceptible to being undiagnosed or misdiagnosed.
This is why we go into schools to educate both girls and boys, teachers and school nurses on Endometriosis.
The average age of diagnosis is 27 years, often after visiting on average 5 doctors. By going into schools, we will reduce diagnosis times and increase the chances of having a better quality of life in the long term.
B.A.S.E @ WORK
Work productivity is reduced by an average of 6.8 hours per week for women with endometriosis, and often times those at the helm do not even know that this disease exists.
This is why we go into the workplaces to educate HR professionals and workers on Endometriosis. We arm them with the knowledge as well as support and coping techniques to create an environment of wellness and improved productivity.
