Yobe partners NGOs on health

Yobe state Commissioner for Health, Dr. Mohammed Bello Kawuwa, has said his ministry has been repositioned to check indiscipline as well as deploy more staff to health facilities in the state to meet the demand of patients.
Dr. Kawuwa made this assertion at the weekend in Damaturu during the biannual/ quarterly review meeting organised by the Ministry of Health and Human Services with support from Maternal, New-born and Child Health MNCH2 and UNFPP. The commissioner cautioned doctors and nursing officers who have look-warm attitude towards their work that they are dealing with human lives and therefore should be seriousness and more dedicated to duty.
“Medical work is not all about competition, once you witness critical cases that you cannot handle, you refer to your senior colleagues without delay and to places that have better facilities,” he said. Speaking on behalf of the MNCH2 Team Leader, the Evidence and Advocacy Coordinator, Musa Mohammed, said “some of the factors leading to death were delay in reaching the health facility, irregular MPDSR committee meetings to review maternal deaths and take actions, among others.
Blueprint gathered that, with all the manpower challenges faced in some of the health facilities, they are tremendous achievements compared to previous years. He commended the efforts and resources put on ground by the state government to arrest the challenges.
