Rotary donates three mobile clinics to Nigeria


- Advertisment -

The Rotary International under the National Polio Plus Committee (NNPPC) has donated three mobile clinics worth twenty million naira to Nigerian government recently in Abuja.

The organization said that the major purpose of the mobile clinics is to reach rural communities where basic health care facilities for polio vaccination are not accessible.

The Governor, Rotary International , District 9125 Dr. Mike Omotosho called on individuals to join the campaign against polio adding that it is not so much about the cost of the facilities but the significance of it to the plight of the people.

“We also look for projects that are sustainable, so even after polio eradication, the facilities can be used to push against other health challenges facing these communities such as mal-nutrition.” Omotosho said.

Also speaking, the Executive Director, National Primary Health Care Development (NPHCD), Dr. Ado Muhammed assured Rotary International that the agency would ensure that the mobile clinics are deployed to rural areas to scale accessibility of primary health care adding that the clinics would serve as an instrument in fast – tracking immunization coverage.
