Anambra Teams Up With UNICEF, Global Fund For Pharmacy Store

Listen to article

A partnership has been established between the United Nations International Children’s Emergency Fund (UNICEF) and Global Fund in collaboration with the Anambra government for the reconstruction and upgrading of its pharmaceutical central store.

During an inspection tour in Awka, Health Commissioner Afam Obidike revealed that the government dedicated 10 percent of the project resources.

Mr. Obidike shared that Anambra was part of the 22 states out of 36 that secured the grant, specifically aimed at enhancing infrastructure for logistics and supply chain management of pharmaceutical commodities.

‘The ongoing upgrade of the state pharmaceuticals central store will make it a standard medical warehouse. It will house only pharmaceutical goods because it is going to have temperature regulation and environmental conduciveness for the commodities that would be inside it.’

‘This is because the potency of drugs is always affected by where it is stored.’

‘I really commend and appreciate Global Fund and UNICEF for their continued partnership with the state government to improve the healthcare system in the state,’ he said.

Stressing the importance of timely completion, the commissioner encouraged the project contractor to expedite actions and meet the established deadline.
