    The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, an international ficing and partnership organization says Nigeria is expected to receive 72 ambulances through the COVID-19 response mechanism.

    The Nigerian News Agency reports that NEMSAS is the third gateway of the Basic Health Care Provision Fund (BHCPF), addressing a serious weakness in Nigeria's health system.

    It is estimated that an efficient Emergency Medical Care Service can reduce mortality by percent in physical and official access, especially at night.

    In its quest to support Nigeria in its emergency care, the COVID-19 1.0 response mechanism had already supported Nigeria with 32 ambulances, which the official noted are currently in the country.

    “Another 72 ambulances will be acquired in the coming months through the COVID-19 response mechanism grants to Nigeria, for Nigerians to ask for help in emergency situations, in addition to equipping hospitals through oxygen therapy,” he explained.

    He praised Nigeria for its legal framework to support the initiative to be developed, while calling for its sustainability.

    He added that it would be a welcome development for the global fund.

    Mulombo commended the Nigerian government for bringing the initiative to implementation status and the entire NEMSAS team for their diligent work thus far.

    “Since emergency medical services require a coordinated multisectoral approach, it is my wish that the signing of the MoU with the relevant governmental and non-governmental institutions today forms a solid foundation for a functional emergency system for the effective provision of services at the federal level. and state. .

    “Given the experience of responding to COVID-19 in recent times, I have no doubt that FMOH will once again demonstrate the success of this intervention soon, in collaboration with all key stakeholders, including States, partners for the development and the private sector. " he is stressed.

    He added that the WHO, within its mandate, would continue to provide technical support to the Government of Nigeria under the GPW13 and the Nigerian Country Cooperation Strategy which fully covers emergency medical treatment under the three billion target.

    GPW13 is an ambitious blueprint for WHO reform, including how the WHO addresses global health challenges, interacts with other international entities, and holds itself accountable to governments and other stakeholders.

    Therefore, he called for stronger collective support to promote health, keep the world safe and serve the vulnerable in the country.

    Dr. Saidu Dumbulwa, National Program Manager, NEMSAS, FMOH, said the 64th National Council of Health (NCH) approved NEMSAS collaboration with partner agencies and sub-national governments, as a private and public sector driven initiative.

    According to him, this will use the existing private public medical assets as the mechanism to achieve the effective provision of the national emergency medical service.

    Dumbulwa said that NEMSAS had developed an implementation manual and other strategic guidelines to define collaboration with subnational governments and partner agencies.

    “The MoU will be signed with the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), the National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS), the Association of Private Physicians of Nigeria (AGPMPN), the Guild of Medical Directors (GMD) and the Federal Capital . Territorial Administration (FCTA) for the immediate implementation of the Phased Program from the FCT.

    “This is to symbolize our collective commitment to partnership as we work in the spirit of inclusiveness to achieve the aspiration of the Nigerian people, and to deliver on Mr. President's priority agenda as well as the Hon'ble Minister's deliverables.

    “Emergency medical systems address a diverse set of illnesses throughout the life course, spanning the full spectrum of communicable infections, noncommunicable conditions, obstetric emergencies, geriatric emergencies, and injuries.

    “Emergency care must be appreciated as a complete system with interdependent components. These components include pre-hospital care, transportation, and hospital care,” she explained.

    According to him, each component is important, but they must all work together to achieve a lasting effect on the health of a population.
