Important Information for Ilera Eko Enrollees | Read Here

INSIDEMAINLAND– The Lagos State Government has announced that medication distribution for Ilera Eko enrollees has begun as part of efforts to ensure residents have access to quality healthcare and free medications.

The General Manager of the Lagos State Health Management Agency, Dr. Emmanuella Zamba, revealed this in a statement on Monday.

Zamba went on to say that the medications would be distributed to all facilities under the scheme based on the number of health scheme enrollees registered in each facility.

She said, “The agency has lined up several interventions that will ensure that all residents get quality healthcare. One such intervention is the supply of medication at no cost to the hospitals, in recognition of the efforts of the healthcare providers partnering with the Lagos State Government to provide access to Ilera Eko enrollees.

“The government is concerned about the feedback received from some enrollees that not all the drugs prescribed by the doctors were usually available and dispensed to them at the hospitals. Given the economic situation in the country and the high cost of goods and services including hospital items, the government decided to dispense the medications to further cushion the effect of the hardship.”

Dr. Amos Azun, Medical Director of County Hospital, Ogba, who received the medications on behalf of the hospital, urged the state government to continue supporting providers with medications and other basic needs in order to improve healthcare delivery in Lagos.
