Katsina government to construct 360 clinics with $110m Islamic Dev’t Bank loan


Katsina government to construct 360 clinics with over N34bn Bank loan 

As part of efforts to promote efficient, effective and wider health care delivery in Katsina state, the State Government says it would construct no fewer than 360 health clinics in the 34 local government areas of the state.

Gov. Aminu Masari made the disclosure in an interview sometime in January at Daura.

Masari said the project would be executed in collaboration with the Islamic Development Bank, adding that negotiations and processes toward actualising the project had commenced.

Katsina Post recalled that the Federal Government had in July 2017 approved a loan request of $110 million from the Islamic Development Bank (IDB) to improve health care delivery in Katsina State.

Apart from the clinics, the State Government will also build a teaching hospital for the three universities in the state, a nursing school, an infectious disease centre among others from the loan.

The amount is equivalent to N34.5 billion at the exchange rate of N314 to a US Dollar.

He noted that the purpose of the health clinics was to provide affordable health care services, especially in rural communities.

According to him, the state government will not relent in the provision of qualitative health care services to the people.

Masari said the government would provide sufficient drugs and modern equipment in all its medical facilities, to ensure quality service delivery.

The governor assured that employment and deployment of qualified medical personnel to public health facilities would be sustained by the government.

Masari said the state government had renovated the general hospitals in Katsina, Malumfashi, Funtua, Dutsinma and Daura, and equipped them with beds, laboratory reagents and other complimentary materials.
