Adewole commends donor agency on drug distribution
Minister of Health, Prof. Isaac Adewole, has commended the Global Fund and United State Agency for International Development, USAID, in building a magnificent premier medical warehouse to manage drugs distribution system in Nigeria.
The minister, who made the commendation shortly after inspecting the warehouse facilities at Jabi, Abuja, also said that the warehouse was to keep drugs and other medical facilities safe, and to manage the distribution system so as to avoid duplication and overlapping of drugs and storage.
In his words “we will avoid wastage of resources and we will make it cheaper, safer and easier.”
He further explained that the facilities would prevent situations where drugs meant for Nigerians expire due to poor storage facilities, describing the building as one that would take care of the medical storage need of health facilities in the country.
Conducting the minister round the facility, the project focal person, Mrs. Adenike Adelanwa, said that the building, which she described as one of the best in Nigeria, was a model pharmaceutical warehouse with cold room to manage vaccines.
The building is expected to be commissioned before the end of 2016.
