 The Kwara State Government has reiterated its commitment to ensuring that the Primary Health Care Facilities across the sixteen Local Government Areas, provide quality health care services at affordable rates to the less privileged groups and other residents in the State. 

The Executive Secretary, Kwara State Primary Health Care Development Agency, Dr. Nusirat Elelu, disclosed this recently at Asa Local Government Area, while conducting a focused Nutrition supportive supervision across five Local Government Areas of the state.

The focused Nutrition supportive supervision was conducted in Asa, Ifelodun, Irepodun, Ekiti and Offa LGAs of the State. 

The Executive Secretary explained that the aim of the focused Nutrition supportive supervision in some selected LGAs is to access the activities of Primary Health Care Centres and to confirm if the selected facilities are providing nutrition interventions to prevent malnutrition in under 5 years children and pregnant women in the communities. 

 Dr. Elelu noted that the Nutrition supportive supervision is also aimed at working with health workers to set goals, monitor their performances, identify and correct problems, which will go a long way to improve the quality of services.

She added that the present administration's huge investments in the health sector cannot be overemphasized, stating that it will continue to yield positive results at ensuring that quality health care services are available at affordable rates.

Dr. Elelu commended the Kwara State Governor, AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq for his laudable achievements in the health sector, especially, at the Primary Health Care Development Agency, for prioritising access to quality health care services as well as renovating health facilities across the state. 

In his remarks, the State Nutrition Officer, Dr. Gbenga Bankole, explained that the objective of the focused Nutrition supportive supervision is to build the capacity of health care workers in order to provide the necessary nutrition support to the communities.
