Gov. Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano State has renewed his administration’s commitment to accord priority to quality healthcare provision  to the residents of the state.

The governor  stated this at the end of a one-day Kano Primary Health Summit 2021, organised on Tuesday to implement the Minimum Service Package (MSP) policy document.

The theme of the Summit was: “Strengthening primary health care towards attainment of universal health coverage through full implementation of Minimum Service Package”.

Ganduje said that his administration had focused on improving primary healthcare services to enhance effective service delivery since he assumed office.

“This administration had employed 44 qualified medical doctors, and one doctor each  was posted to  each of the Primary Healthcare  Centres in every  local government area of the state, with the aim of providing the needed heathcre  attention at the facilities for the citizens,” he said.

The governor, however, called on wealthy individuals and philanthropists to support government’s efforts by donating the needed drugs and equipment to various primary healthcare facilities.

He also commended all the stakeholders who donated and made commitments toward providing  quality healthcare services  in the state.

He assured  them that his administration would make judicious use of the donations to provide quality healthcare  services at the grassroots level.(NAN)
