Oyo Government Takes Steps To Boost Health Care Delivery
Oyo State government has commenced negotiation with a global drug manufacturer, Cobalt Partners to start the supply of drugs and medical equipment to the state as soon as possible.
The State Commissioner for Health, Dr. Bashir Bello disclosed this while speaking with journalists in Ibadan.
Dr. Bello said the move to work with the drug company was hinged on the need to have only genuine drugs which will be supplied to all health institutions in the state and cut off the risk of unreliable drugs that might worsen people’s health conditions.
He also revealed the plan of the government to partner with the Association of Nigerian Professionals in the United States, under the umbrella of Obafemi Awolowo University, OAU Alumni, to offer free medical services to the people of the State.
According to him, the free health mission which would involve general medical services, eye operations, minor surgeries among others, will be done in various medical institutions within the State.
