UN recommends Ondo for Country’s Face in healthcare delivery
The representative of the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) to Nigeria, Mrs. Ratidzai Nahlovu on last week recommended that Ondo state should be projected as the face of the country in terms of qualitative health care delivery.
Nahlovu made the recommendation when she led a delegation of the International Agency on a courtesy visit to Governor Mimiko at the Government House in Akure.
According to her, what she was able to see having been conducted round some health facilities in the State by the commissioner for health, Dr. Dayo Adeyanju, portrayed Ondo State as the cynosure for health sector transformation in Nigeria.
She commended the Mimiko led administration’s giant strides in the health sector saying that “our visit to some health facilities in the state including mother and child hospital revealed that Governor Mimiko has done so much for the people in the provision of quality health care service”.
The Country’s representative said the Agency would partner the state government in reducing maternal mortality adding that other states of the federation should emulate the Ondo example in maternal health care.
The UNFPA boss also lauded the Agbebiye initiative of the state government under which pregnant women are referred to public health facilities nearest to them in the state for delivery.
In his response, Governor Mimiko said, his administration is on course in ensuring that better health care services are accessible to the citizenry.
The Governor further noted that his administration would partner the organization for more qualitative health care service delivery across the state.
