The Jos University Teaching Hospital has received medical consumables and equipment worth N160m from Medshare International, Atlanta, USA.
According to JUTH’s Chief Medical Director, Prof. Edmund Banwat, the consignment is the second from the organisation that focuses on bridging the gap between medical needs and supply.
“The consumables were facilitated by Conscience International President, Dr. Jim Jennings,” Banwat told the News Agency of Nigeria, in Jos on Tuesday.
NAN reports that Danny McCain, a professor of religious studies at the University of Jos and a friend of Dr. Jim Jennings, handed over the supplies to Banwat on behalf of Conscience International.
“This is the third supplies donated to JUTH between July 2015 and now, as a result of advocacy and networking between the two organisations.
“Project C.U.R.E had similarly donated a container-load of medical consumables last year,” Banwat told NAN, after receiving the items.
He promised that the supplies would be used to provide quality health service to the people.
Among the consumables are laryngoscope sets, surgical microscopes, patient monitors, nebuliser and compressors.
Others include orthopaedic equipment, theatre linens, crutches, drape packs, gowns, gloves and nasal cannular. (NAN)
