The Nasarawa State government has tasked private colleges of Health Technology on upholding standard and professional ethnics in the discharge of their activities in the state.
The state Commissioner for Health, Ahmed Baba-Yahaya made the call during a meeting with representatives of the institutions at the state ministry’s office, Lafia.
Mr Baba-Yahaya said that the state government was ready to support schools of health in the state that conform to the registration requirement.
He, therefore, explained that the state government would partner the schools in the state to ensure that health institutions and facilities are up to standard.
Mr Baba-Yahaya particularly applauded Al-Haq School of Hygiene and Health Technology, Keffi for meeting the requisite requirement set by the ministry for running their schools in the state.
The commissioner, therefore, urged other schools to emulate the two schools by inviting the ministry to inspect their facilities for advice and approval.
Also speaking, the director of Public Health in the ministry, Dr. Ibrahim Adamu urged the schools to always liaise with the ministry for proper counseling.
Mr Ibrahim advise various schools that are yet to obtain registration to do so, “for proper documentation and recognition by the state government and other relevant agencies”.
