Speak The Change You Wish To See

International Stuttering Awareness Day (ISAD), or International Stammering Awareness Day, is an annual celebration held on October 22. It is known in the UK and Ireland, since 1998.

The day is intended to raise public awareness of the issues faced by millions of people – one percent of the world’s population – who stutter, or stammer.

Every year, stuttering communities and associations around the world get together, put on events and campaign to highlight how certain aspects of society can be difficult for people who stutter; to challenge negative attitudes and discrimination; and to debunk myths that people who stammer are nervous or less intelligent.

ISAD also celebrates the many notable figures who stutter; who have made a mark on the world now and throughout history in the fields of science, politics, philosophy, art, cinema and music.


Over the past week, the management of the University of Benin Teaching Hospital through members of its Infection Prevention and Control Committee, embarked on the training of domestic staff on hand hygiene and waste management. This annual training is part of the Continuous Medical Education for Health Care Workers, to improve infection prevention and control practices in the facility and establish a culture of providing quality care at all times, especially with the 3rd wave of the COVID-19 pandemic ongoing.
