The EU-UNICEF partnership has upgraded 18 primary healthcare centres to referral centres in Bauchi state.
The Executive Chairman, Bauchi State Primary Health Care Development Agency, Dr Rilwanu Mohammed stated this in a statement issued on Saturday.
The 18 primary health care centres were renovated by the EU-UNICEF intervention from the 107 health care centres undergoing total refurbishment and equipping.
According to Mohammed, it is expected that beneficiaries of all EU-UNICEF interventions will access antenatal care services, skilled birth deliveries and immunization at the centres.
He added that Gov. Bala Muhammads administration in the state identified health and education sectors among its top priority areas and placed high premium on partnerships that would add value to the lives of the citizenry.
Mohammed urged citizens to take ownership and safeguard the facilities from decay and mismanagement so as to maximize their benefits.
