Yobe govt establishes two health agencies to boost service delivery
Governor Mai Mala Buni has signed some bills into law establishing Yobe State Emergency Medical Ambulance Service and Yobe State Healthcare and Health-Related Facilities Inspection and Monitoring Agency.
This was disclosed in a statement on Wednesday by the governor’s spokesman, Mamman Mohammed, explaining that the two laws are aimed at boosting healthcare delivery in matters relating to domestic and road traffic accidents and monitoring of healthcare facilities to provide the best standard practice.
The statement further explained that the Emergency Medical Ambulance Service law provides the opportunity for first aid treatment to victims from the scene of accidents before reaching medical facilities.
The statement said, “Similarly, the Health Facility Inspection and Monitoring Agency empowers health authorities in the state to inspect and monitor services provided by all medical facilities in the state to eliminate substandard services and cutting corners in medical services.”
“The two laws will ensure that healthcare delivery is not compromised at any level in Yobe state.”
