Written by on July 13, 2022

Dr. Afam Obidike says plans are underway to establish the state’s Health Facilities Monitoring and Accreditation Agency to eliminate quackery as well as improve healthcare service delivery in the state.

Dr. Obidike said this when he appeared before the state House of Assembly Committee on Finance and Appropriation in Awka for the 2022 Revised Budget defense.

He noted that the intended agency would be charged with the responsibility of monitoring both private and public health facilities to ensure proper registration, accreditation, inspection and monitoring of all health facilities.

The commissioner said the ministry also planned to launch Telemedicine in August, set up the state’s Medical Service and Ambulance System as well as a drug quality assurance laboratory to test all drugs in the state.
