Health: Osun Government Commences Drugs Distribution

In his quest to fulfill his campaign promise to improve healthy living status among Osun people, Osun State Governor, Ademola Adeleke has commenced distribution of drugs and medical consumables to the 445 non-focal health centres across the State.

The drugs would be distributed through the State Primary Healthcare Development Board,

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 health care centres across the state.

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.

He stated further that the grassroots is where health care delivery should be addressed first, hence the distribution of drugs to Primary Health Centres will save a lot of lives in situations of emergency in rural areas.

"The programme is to address the challenge occasioned by the perennial ‘out of stock syndrome’ in the state.

"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."

Fabiyi who appreciated Governor Adeleke for the gesture also assured the government and Osun people 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.
