Mutfwang Equips Over 300 Health Centres, 17 General Hospitals.

Plateau State Commissioner for Health, Dr Cletus Shurkuk, says the government has commenced the renovation and equipping of more than 300 Primary Health Centres in the state for quality healthcare delivery.

Shurkuk, who disclosed this in Jos, said the government was also renovating 17 general and cottage hospitals, adding that, the current administration was poised to ensure that its citizens, especially those at the grassroots, had access to qualitative healthcare services.

He said, the Governor Caleb Mutfwang-led administration is very keen on the health of its citizenry, and have put very stringent measures on ground to tackle lapses in all healthcare facilities in the state, from infrastructures, equipment to human resources, adding that, the state government, who had made the health sector, one of its priorities, was going into partnership with the Jos University Teaching Hospital.

He said the partnership would enable the general hospitals get specialists from Jos University Teaching Hospital on specific days to carter for patients, and would also reduce the rate at which rural dwellers travelled to the city in search of specialists that the general and cottage hospitals lacked.

The commissioner also said, the government had also approved the employment of more consultants and other healthcare workers to boost the availability of skilled manpower in the renovated and equipped Primary Health Centres and general hospitals.
