“I also acknowledge the UNICEF support by constructing new oxygen production plant in Ali Kwara General Hospital Azare amounting to N2.5 billion, renovation and equipping of 107 PHCs, capacity building for health workers and continuous support for community structures including volunteer community mobilizers (VCMs), mama to mama support groups, community resource persons and community health influencers, promoters and services (CHIPS agents).”
