Arrangements have been concluded for the flag off of the Integrated Medical Outreach Programme (I-MOP), an initiative of the Federal Government, aimed at bringing succour to underserved and unreached Nigerians, especially mothers and children between zero to two years.

A statement by the Executive Director/CEO, National Primary Health Care Development Agency, Dr. Faisal Shuaib, yesterday, said the Integrated Medical Outreach Programme (I-MOP) will provide free primary healthcare services such as immunisation, treatment of minor ailments, health talks, counselling services, screening for non-communicable diseases and general medical consultations to Nigerians.

According to him, three rounds of the programme will be implemented in 409 lowest performing councils and medical outreaches in each of the 109 Senatorial Districts across the 36 states and FCT between March and June 2020.

The President is expected to flag off the programme at the Bwari Township PHC, tomorrow.
