The Commissioner of Health, Dr. Amimu Ibrahim Tsanyawa, has said that Kano State is poised to achieve the best result in the reduction of mortality and morbidity in the state.
Dr. Tsanyawa made the statement during the handing over of printed revised National Health Management Information System ( KSCHMA) version 2019 data tools to Kano state Ministry of Health by Global fund.
The commissioner said that this is an extremely speacial moment for Kano State and Governor Ganduje's administration which earlier this year expressed commitment to deploy significant resources towards sustaining the gains of health interventions in the state, particularly the transfer of ownership of the 2019 revised KSCHMA tools printed by Global fund.
A statement by the lnformation Officer, Hadiza Namadi, explained that the availability of the revised KSCHMA tools will play an important role in ensuring continuous data collection, monitoring new disease that threaten global health security ( like COVID 19, Malaria and Other) and the changes in distribution and virulence of well known diseases like the influenza virus.
Dr. Tsanyawa noted that the failure of surveillance system in developing countries is often due to limited available resources, lack of knowledgeable staff, disorganization and poor infrastructure for finding and reporting case.
The commissioner also said that the state in it’s bid to contribute towards sustainable and effective surveillance system, printed 10,000 copies of the revised KSCHMA tools to be distributed to over 1600 public and private facilities in the state.
He therefore thanked the Global Fund for the copies of KSCHMA data tools which include the Daily General Attendance Register, OPD Register, Child Immunization Register, Facility Daily Immunization sheet among others, which were printed and delivered to the state assuring that the materials would be used judiciously.
