In his quest to fulfil his campaign promise to improve healthy living among Osun people, Osun State Governor, through the State Primary Healthcare Development Board, has commenced the distribution of drugs and medical consumables to the 445 non-focal health centres across the State.

The drugs and medical consumables which are scheduled for distribution to the three Senatorial Districts in the State, are to be accessed, free of charge, from primary healthcare centres across the state.

Speaking on the distribution, the Executive Secretary, State Primary Healthcare Development Board, Dr Samson Fabiyi disclosed that necessary drugs had been provided in primary healthcare centres across the State and that the State Government would not relent in giving necessary support and aid to all government health centres in the state.

Dr Fabiyi noted that grassroots is where health care delivery should be addressed first, hence, the distribution of drugs to PHCs to save a lot of lives in situations of emergency in rural areas.

He explained that the programme was to address the challenge occasioned by the perennial ‘out of stock syndrome’ in the State.

He also said that the procurement of the drugs was in line with the vision of Governor Ademola Adeleke’s rescue mission, aimed at improving health care delivery in the State.

Dr Fabiyi who appreciated Governor Adeleke for the gesture, also assured the government and people of Osun State that the drugs would serve the purpose for which they were procured, adding that the Agency had developed mechanisms to prevent diversion of the drugs.
