The Mandate Secretary, Health Services and Environment of the Federal Capital Territory, Dr Adedolapo Fasawe, has said the Federal Government is committed to fostering a healthcare system that meets the evolving needs of the community in the FCT.

She admitted that there is the need for quick interventions in areas such as hospital facility infrastructure, human capacity, medical equipment and staffing among others for Abuja hospitals.

Fasawe made this known when she undertook an on-the-spot assessment of the 14 General and District hospitals under the FCT administration.

A statement from the special media assistant to the Mandate Secretary, Bola Ajao, noted that the assessment visits aimed at evaluating the current state of all healthcare facilities, identifying areas for improvement, and ensuring the delivery of quality healthcare.

“This on-the-spot assessment visit was based on the directive of the FCT Minister, Nyesom Wike, and crucial in our ongoing efforts to strengthen public healthcare in the FCTA.

“We are focused on identifying challenges, implementing necessary reforms, and ensuring that citizens receive the best possible care available at all times. There is a need for quick interventions in areas such as facility infrastructure, human capacity, medical equipment, staffing, and standardization of operations,” Fasawe stated.

She reaffirmed the government’s commitment to fostering a robust healthcare system that prioritises the well-being of citizens and healthy families.
