The Greatest Wealth, is Health. Episode 2

The State currently has 838 rehabilitated and functional primary health facilities. Having been provided with advanced structures and facilities as well as the improvements made on welfare, public hospitals are now far more enticing than ever and attract no small number of qualified medical personnel.

In a bid to increase medical support service schemes, the Governor Yahaya Bello administration flagged off access to free healthcare services for indigenes of the State.

The scheme tagged ‘Bello Care’ is expected to cater for the medical needs of pregnant women, children below 5 years, people with disabilities and persons above the age of 65. 15,000 Kogites were enrolled into the programme.

This is estimated to eventually have a reductive impact on the mortality rates of pregnant women and vulnerable groups in the State.

A baseline assessment carried out across Healthcare facilities showed that lack of money to go to the Hospital was the major reason for the generally low antenatal attendance, low Hospital delivery, High home delivery and High maternal and newborn death.
