The National Primary Health Care Development Agency (NPHCDA) through Kogi State Primary Health Care Development Agency (KGSPHCDA) implemented Modified Integrated Medical Outreach programme (MI-MOP) in Kogi State from Monday 11th to Friday 15th January 2021.
The activity was conducted in Fourteen (14) LGAs : Ankpa, Bassa, Dekina, Ibaji, Idah, Igalamela Odolu, Kogi, Lokoja, Mopa Muro, Ofu, Okehi, Olamaboro, Omala, and Yagba East.
All antigens were administered along with Vitamin A supplementation, Malaria tests and treatment, ANC services and pluses such as Pampers.
The Executive Director KGSPHCDA – Dr Abubakar Yakubu who seized the opportunity to address Programme Officers during one of the preparatory meetings to the MI-MOP implementation, appreciated Staff as well as Partners for the support and efforts in ensuring that the State carries out all the activities missed which resulted in a backlog. He challenged all to adhere to preventive measures and prayed for safety for all health workers even in the face of the second wave of COVID and better performances in the year 2021.
“I welcome you all to the year 2021. We thank God for our lives and pray for His sustenance. Let us not relax on our oars to put in our best to work especially at a time like this when the World is faced with health challenges. By the grace of God, we will surmount these issues. May God bless each and everyone of us through the year. Amen.”
