NAHCON’s Medical Mission in Saudi Arabia received a donation of 300 units of Malaria Test Kits from Saudi Arabian Makkah, Ministry of Health (MoH). This was made on Monday 3rd June 2024, when representatives of the Ministry, Dr Yahya and Dr Bandar, paid a courtesy visit to NAHCON’s Main Clinic at Misfala Kudai, AL-MUSAFIREEN Hotel.At hand to receive the guests was Dr Abubakar A-Isma’eel, Head of Nigeria’s Medical Mission for 2024 Hajj season.

This was contained in a statement the Assistant Director Public Affairs, for Chairman/CEO NAHCON, Fatima Sanda Usara, it further explain that, the visit followed recognition of NAHCON clinics as highly responsible and professional. This confidence reposed in the Commission’s primary healthcare system was created by responsible synergy between NAHCON’s health work force and those of the Saudi MoH via a two-way communication/action strategy; if NAHCON clinics refer serious cases to any of the Saudi hospitals, they stabilize the patients, then return them to NAHCON clinics for continued clinical observation. This reduces the bed occupancy at Saudi hospitals.

Sharing of original Malaria Test Kits with NAHCON clinics to facilitate early diagnosis for prompt treatment indicates the level of earned confidence of the Kingdom’s Health Ministry by the NAHCON health facilities.

In another development, NAHCON’s Commissioner of Policy, Personnel Management and Finance, Prince Aliu AbdulRazak witnessed the 2024 Hajj airlift from the South-South region. The Rivers’ state Governor, His Excellency Sir Siminalayi Fubarabade the River State contingent farewell at the Port Harcourt International Airport, Omagwa on Tuesday.Governor Fubara admonished the pilgrims to be law abiding and to pray for the state as well as for Nigeria. The Governor then supports each pilgrim with a cash donation of US$300 to alleviate the foreign exchange shortfall from their Basic Travel Allowance.

The NAHCON Chairman, Malam Jalal Ahmad Arabi, expressed satisfaction with both developments.
