18.5.17

HIV Drugs Worth N1billion Expired In Storage - Health Minister Reveals - The Herald Nigeria: The Health Minister revealed this while delivering a speech at the “Dissemination Meeting of 2016 National Health Facility Survey” in Abuja on Tuesday.

Adewole revealed that the knowledge and competence of healthcare workers, availability of drugs and basic equipment, along with management and supervision of healthcare facilities were essential to the improvement of the health sector.

The Health Minister noted during the speech: “Availability of commodities is also important. We have mentioned inadequate funding which is a major factor but it is not the only reason for the out of stock of commodities. Better management is also important.

“We are living witnesses to the challenges we face with the HIV programme where drugs worth about $3.2m expired. So, it is not a question of it (drugs) not being available. Sometimes the drugs are there but we don’t give it to them (patients) and then they expire.”
