DG PHc sensitize Fulani community on benefits of immunisation services


Eneji Simon Ushie, 20 July 2020

The Director General of the Cross River State Primary Healthcare development agency, Dr Janet Ekpenyong has admonished parents especially nursing mothers on the need to present their children for immunisation services as and at when due NEGROIDHAVEN can say.

The admonission was made in Utanga, Obanliku Local Government Area of Cross River State while on a working visit to supervise Primary Healthcare facility in the Northern part of the state.

Dr Ekpenyong who said, immunisation protects children from common diseases affecting children tasked members of the Hausa-Fulani community to avail their children the opportunity to be immunised just like every other child in the country.

She urged them to debunk every rumor and ideology portraying immunisation as unsafe with negative implications to the health of their children but rather see it as the best form of protection for children against childhood killer diseases.

Ekpenyong further assured them that, no region, groups or individual will be marginalized or neglected in the provision of any Primary Health care services as the state government is keen to actualising an efficient health sector in line with global best practices where citizens can receive a 24 hours quality, affordable and available healthcare.

One of the respondent and participants, Hadiza Daura praised the DG for the awareness creation as she also pledged her commitment to sensitise other people within the Hausa-Fulani settlement in Utanga and across Obanliku.
