Minister inaugurates new committee on National Health Acts
THE Minister and Supervising Minister of Health, Dr. Khaliru Alhassan has sworn in a new Technical Review Committee (TRC) for the National Health Act (NHAct-2014).
The review Committee that was cautiously selected to guarantee representation of the key institutions has directive for the implementation of the NH Act.
Speaking at the inauguration, Alhassan, spoke on the need for the Technical Review Committee (TRC) and said that all members are likely to advise him on any matter relating to the acts.
His words: “ Although a number of the institutions, structures and mechanisms have been provided for in the Act, there seems to be some misunderstanding of the actual interpretation of the provisions. Some of the provisions require the development of detailed guidelines to be implemented without ambiguity and in a consistent manner.
“All 26 members of the TRC will be expected to advise the Supervising Minister in matters relating to operationalization of the Act, consider reports and recommendations of the TRC and advise the Honorable Minister on positions, protocols and resolutions before presentation to the National Steering Committee of the NH Act.”
