Enugu State Government has partnered with the State Chapter of Nigerian Medical Association (NMA) in the state to ensure improved child and maternal healthcare delivery in the state.
Governor of Enugu State, Hon. Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi made this revelation during an event organised by the NMA in conjunction with local government councils to mark this year’s Maternal, New Born and Child Health Week.
Ugwuanyi said “Today marks yet another milestone in the effort of the state government to deliver good health care to our people, especially to mothers and children under the age of five. This underscores our total commitment to the improvement of quality healthcare service delivery in the state.
He promised that his administration will do all it can to support health professionals in the state to bring adequate health care to the door step of the people of Enugu State.
The Chairman of NMA, Enugu State Chapter, Dr. George Ugwu also added that “We are dedicated more than ever before to seeing that our people get what they deserve. We are aware that this state cannot only take care of its medical needs but can even export Medicare to other places and earn resources from that. So we are ready to volunteer specialist services to visit the rural areas and support whatever effort the state government will be making there; provided the logistics are on ground.”
