The National Hajj Commission of Nigeria has introduced a Caravan System of health delivery to the pilgrims this year.
The new initiative will operate in religious sites of Muna, Arafat and Muzdalifah. The commissioner in charge of health matters, Dr Ibrahim Kana, disclosed this in a statement in Mecca.
He, therefore, solicited the cooperation of the state hajj authorities for the success of the initiative, adding that it is another plus in the commission’s health delivery to Nigerian pilgrims.
According to Kana, the caravan health delivery system entails distribution of medical personnel to states and the zones of South-East and South-South.
It can be recalled that this year, the National Medical Team introduced first aid rooms in all the hotels accommodating Nigerian pilgrims in Madinah to attend to minor illnesses of the pilgrims.
