The Federal Government on Sunday says it has put in place all mechanisms to monitor and curb the outbreak of monkeypox causing anxiety around the world.
The Minister of Health, Dr Osagie Ehanire, said this at the inauguration of projects executed by Usmanu Danfodiyo University Teaching Hospital, Sokoto.
Ehanire said the government is monitoring the outbreak and making effort to enlighten the public on the disease and how to prevent its spread.
He said the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration was committed to improving the quality of healthcare delivery in the country.
“This is a commitment to meet the highest standard found elsewhere in the world, as not everyone has the desire or means to travel abroad for treatment.
“As such, I call on doctors, nurses and care providers to bear this in mind and commit to the stated objective of excellence in service delivery to our people.
“Government has provided you the tools we today bear witness to,” he said.
The minister added that this administration has since inception in 2015, made a point of investing in the health sector through budgetary provision and special intervention projects.
