Post by Knockles » Sun Sep 10, 2017 8:31 am

To check epidemic diseases in riverine communities, cross river state government has taken the campaign against Lassa fever, polio and other prevalent diseases to Bakassi boarder area near Cameroon.

The state commissioner for health, Inyang Asibong who led the team said the need to strengthen healthcare delivery along the international boarder line between Nigeria and Cameroon informed the advocacy campaign.

He said the exercise is a continuous process of gathering data to aid early detection of new diseases.

Cross river state coordinator, world health organization Thomas Igbo said, the organisation will keep supporting cross river state to ensure that it achieves the universal health coverage in the state.

Beneficiaries of the sensitization campaign which is in partnership with the world health organization include military and paramilitary personnel as well as boarder post operatives.
