Routine Immunisation: Dangote, Gates Foundations Sign MoU with State Governments

The Aliko Dangote Foundation and the Bill and Melina Gates Foundation has signed Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on Health Systems Strengthening, Routine immunisation and Primary Health Care.

The MoU was entered into by Kaduna, Bauchi Yobe, Borno, Kano, and Sokoto states with Aliko Dangote Foundation and the Bill and Melina Gates Foundation.

The Minister of Health, Dr Osagie Ehanire, said this in Abuja at the 65th joint national briefing of the Presidential Task Force (PTF) on COVID-19.

Ehanire said that the achievements of the states in implementing the terms to strengthen routine immunization at sub-national levels were impressive.

“I was particularly delighted with the level of participation of traditional rulers in all the states.

“I commend the governors of these states for their increased investment in Primary Health Care, as well as Alhaji Aliko Dangote and Mr Bill Gates, for their sustained interest and contributions to support the states,” he said.
