Osun Healthcare Is Working

The health management programmes of the present administration is indeed laudable. It is indeed a milestone.The idea of revamping nine hospitals in Ile-Ife, Ilesa, Ikirun, Osogbo, Ede, Iwo, Ikire and Ila-Orangun, is indeed novel and unprecedented and is worthy of emulation.
Apart from the physical infrastructure like Out Patient Department (OPD), mortuary, doctors’ quarters, roads and block fencing, there are plans to equip these hospitals to bring them to standards that are internationally-acceptable worldwide, and also to supply them with drugs.
Apart from all these, starting from the State Hospital, Iwo, the state government has been organising free surgical operations to remove hernia and other body lumps for all citizens in the state and indeed, the populace have really gained from these surgeries, as both the young, old and even babies have successfully being operated on across the nine state hospitals in the state.
The government even went ahead to organise free eye surgeries and distribution of eye glasses, which attracted MTN Foundation attention.
When the health of a people is secure, then there is tendency that the people would work well and be creative.
Kudos must go to the indefatigable Commissioner of Health, Dr. (Mrs.) Temitope Ilori, who has aligned herself with the aspirations of the state government in the provision of free health to its citizenry.
A visit to the state hospitals would confirm this, but with all these done, there is need for the health managers to make judicious and effective use of these equipment that would be installed, be up and doing and shun laziness and ensure prompt service delivery.
Government on its part needs to ensure adequate training and re-training of its health managers. With this, Osun would be the medical centre of Nigeria and this can be achieved.
