The high power delegation comprising the Ministry of Health, NPHIL, WHO and the US based Center for Disease Control, has expressed delight over the quality of healthcare being provided by the Sinoe County Health Team.
The delegation at the start of its second leg of the tour is headed by Deputy Health Minister for Administration, Norwu Howard.
A Ministry of health release signed by its Communication Director, Sorbor George quoted the delegation as lauding the Sinoe County Health Team for its preparedness and creativity in providing healthcare.
Deputy Minister Howard said she was highly impressed of the encouraging health indicators that the people of Sinoe County achieved.
Minister Howard said unlike other counties, Sinoe has shown a great deal of creativity and preparedness to run the sector.
Earlier, the county reported a heightened surveillance system.
As a result, there is significant decrease in the number of cases including measles, Lassa fever, maternal, neonatal among other diseases.
The County team blamed the reduction on series of public health actions taken including increased community engagement, vaccination activities and outreach.
The team although spoke about drugs stock out and delay in receiving allotment, but indicated creative ways in handling those challenges.
In remarks, the Director General of NPHIL Tolbert Nyenswah and US-based Center for Disease Control Country Representative, Desmond William, said they see tremendous progress in the public health system to prevent, detect and respond to public health threats and surveillance.
Director Nyenswah then thanked the WHO for supporting the nationwide tour in all 15 counties.
The second leg of the nationwide tour will take the delegation to Rivercess, and Grand Bassa.
