“I have gone round most parts of the hard to reach terrains in the Kwara North Senatorial District of the State and seen that your teams are delivering appropriately and accordingly to stem entry of alien diseases especially through immunisation at the primary level,” the Commissioner said.

Dr. Razaq disclosed that the full implementation of the Primary Health Care (PHC) under one roof will further strengthen the agency in delivering qualitative health care services.

In her remarks, the Executive Secretary, Primary Health Care Development Agency, Dr. Nusirat Elelu, appreciated the support of the State Governor, Mallam AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq, for improving the infrastructural status of the PHCs in a way that can make the Agency invite the national team for accreditation of more centres for the Health Care Provision Fund.
