Gombe gets consignment of medical equipment from US-based Project ‘CURE’

Gombe gets consignment of medical equipment from US-based Project ‘CURE’

Gombe State government has received the first of five 40ft containers of lightly used medical equipment and supplies from the United States-based charity organisation, Project CURE.

The items delivered include portable x-ray machines, digital ultrasound machines, anesthetic machines, emergency resuscitation beds (ERBs), and ventilators.

Other items are defibrillators, oxygen concentrators, electrocardiogram machines, fetal Doppler machines, vascular ultrasound and different types of medical supplies, according to a statement signed by Ismaila Misilli, senior special assistant, media and publicity to the governor.

The statement, made available to BusinessDay, said the goods arrived in Gombe on Saturday.

It would be recalled that Gombe State government had entered into a partnership with the United States-based healthcare service organisation in a bid to improve the health sector for effective and efficient service delivery.

This followed the governor’s earlier visit to the head office of the organisation in Phoenix, Arizona, shortly after he won the March 9 gubernatorial election, where he sought for support in addressing the dire conditions of the health facilities in the state and the general healthcare challenges.

Project CURE had in September 2019 sent a team led by Charles Irion which toured around the 23 secondary health facilities in Gombe State and carried out a needs assessment of the hospitals.

Sequel to that exercise, the US organisation packaged five 40ft containers full of medical equipment and supplies to help bridge the gaps identified by their assessment team in Gombe State.

Project CURE is an international organisation that partners states in developing countries to offer support to hospitals, clinics, and community health centres to help them provide quality healthcare and other critical medical services.
