A Medical Practitioner, Dr Ogbonna Nwambeke, has said that the intervention of the United States Agency for International Development (USAID)–Integrated Health Programme (IHP) has boosted healthcare delivery in Ebonyi.
Nwambeke, who is the Medical Officer in charge of the General Hospital Ezzamgbo, Ohaukwu Local Government Area of Ebonyi, made the assertion on Sunday while speaking with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN).

The medical practitioner noted that such intervention has made the job of health workers easier in the face of daunting challenges.

“The situation in our hospital for instance was not easy until USAID-IHP assisted us through various interventions.

“These interventions include: training and re-training of staff, maternal/child health and family planning services, health education among others,” he said.

He noted that the training and re-training on service delivery were mostly significant because they were rare in the sector.

“USAID-IHP provided us with needed materials to discharge our functions such as family planning commodities and surgical check-list among other working tools.

“These items have assisted us in making efficient diagnosis, treatments and offering general healthcare services to the people,” he said.

Nwambeke expressed happiness with the state government’s approval for recruitment of health personnel, noting that the hospital was in dire need of staff.

“When these commodities are provided and there is no one to do the work, it is then not desirable.
“The lack of midwives and nurses for instance, make expectant mothers yield to the temptation of patronising quack birth attendants for deliveries.

 

“Adequate manpower is critical to check incidences of maternal mortality in the state,” Nwambeke added.
