Health Minister Urges Humanitarian Team to Evolve Sustainable Health Response in North East
The Honorable Minster of Health, Professor Adewole has charged participants at the health humanitarian review briefing to evolve a robust health response as part of the comprehensive presidential initiative in the North East. Professor Adewole said this at the meeting on Health humanitarian response within conflict affected communities in the North East Region of Nigeria.
The Minister, who gave the assurance of his commitment to address the issues related to health at the affected communities in the North East, also said the Ministry was committed to make health care closer to the people by strengthening the primary health care system.
He expressed the Ministry's determination to work with the government in ensuring that the Primary health care system renders quality service to the people. We will no longer access health care delivery in the country on the basis of money allocated but also on how well the money has been expended, and the impact made on the citizens.
Professor Adewole said every life counts and every death must be accounted for; all processes must be documented for planning purposes and as lessons for the future generation.
Earlier, the Permanent Secretary o the Ministry, Dr. (MRS) AMINA Shamaki represented by Dr. Bridget Okoeguale, the Director of Public Health noted that the gathering showcased the significance allotted to a coordinated health response that has been envisaged by the National stakeholders and development partners.
