‘One million residents to enjoy maternal childcare services in Lagos’
Over one million women of child-bearing age and children will benefit from various maternal and childcare services to be provided by the 110-bed Maternal and Childcare Centre (MCC) built by the Lagos State government for women and children in Eti-Osa Local Council of the state.
Commissioner for Health, Prof. Akin Abayomi, who stated this yesterday after an inspection of the facility, noted that the centre would impact positively on maternal and child health indices and help to address the issue of access to maternal and childcare services in the council and its environs.
Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Health, Dr. Titilayo Goncalves, who also spoke during the inspection of the facility, said that the establishment of the facility was a dream come true in fulfilment of Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu-led administration’s promise to bring maternal and childcare care services to the door-step of the community.
