The Oyo State Government has announced that another series of  Free Health Mission (free medical services) will start today, May 15, 2017 at the Adeoyo Maternity Teaching Hospital, Yemetu Ibadan as part of the events commemorating the sixth anniversary of the Abiola Ajimobi administration in Oyo State.

The free health mission, which involves free surgical services, screening and treatment of high blood pressure, diabetics, malaria, family planning, HIV screening, immunisation and vitamin A for children under one year, will hold across the six geo-political zones of the state.

The state Commissioner for Information, Culture and Tourism, Mr. Toye Arulogun, explained at the weekend that the programme was born out of the present administration’s concern for the well-being of the people of the state as well as to provide qualitative healthcare delivery, saying that the present administration has used its free medical services policy to treat up to one million patients in the past.
