Ekiti State Government Launches Free Surgery missions for residents

The Ekiti State Government has launched a free surgical mission aimed at providing access to healthcare services to its residents, particularly those who are underserved and financially disadvantaged. The initiative is part of the state’s efforts to improve healthcare accessibility and ensure that everyone has access to necessary surgical interventions without financial burdens.

According to Dr. Oyebanji Filani, the state’s Commissioner for Health, the free surgical mission is an extension of the government’s commitment to providing quality healthcare to its citizens. He stated that the mission will cater to a wide range of surgical needs, including Caesarian sections, hernia repairs, appendectomies, cataract surgeries, lump removals, fibroid removals, and hydrocele repairs.

The commissioner explained that the key objectives of the initiative include enhancing healthcare access, providing free surgical services to those who cannot afford them, and improving health outcomes by addressing surgical conditions that can greatly affect one’s quality of life and general health.

Patients requiring surgical intervention are currently being enrolled at primary healthcare facilities across the state. To participate in the program, patients must provide their National Identification Number and a passport photograph. The surgical procedures are to be performed at specific hospitals that are equipped with the necessary equipment and professionals to ensure safe and effective outcomes.

Post-surgical follow-up and rehabilitation services will also be provided to ensure full recovery and promptly address any complications that may arise. The state government is optimistic that this initiative will make a significant impact in improving the health and wellbeing of its residents.
