Oyo State Governor, Seyi Makinde, on Friday, commissioned the Renal Dialysis Unit, High Dependency Unit and the Diabetes Screening and Treatment Centre at the Adeoyo State Hospital, Ibadan.
The projects were built and equipped with the support from the Global Fund, the Afolabi family of Kaderu Compound, Ibadan and the Lions Club International, District 404 B1, Nigeria.
The governor thanked the two organisations for their support to improve health care delivery in the state.
A statement by the Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Taiwo Adisa, quoted the governor as reiterating his administration’s commitment to ensuring that residents have adequate access to health care delivery.
Makinde also inspected six primary health centres out of the 200 already renovated by Primary Health Centres (PHCs) across the 351 electoral wards in the state.
While commissioning the Diabetes Centre, the governor said: “This project was made possible by funding from Lion’s International Foundation 2021/2022 service year under DG Rasheed O.B. Ologundudu.”
Similarly, the governor inspected six PHCs where renovation works had been completed as part of the administration’s ongoing renovation and equipment of 351 PHCs across the state.
The renovation and re-modelling projects, according to the state government, were aimed at improving the health care system at the grassroots.
Makinde, while inspecting the centres at Ikumapayi in Olodo; Irefin; Oke Are in Beere in Ibadan North Local Council; Odo-Ona, Elebu in Ido Local Council and Ring Road, said the Oyo State Health insurance Scheme (OYSHIA) would run the facilities.
