Receiving the trucks on behalf of the Ministry and the Government, at the Handing over ceremony held at the Youyi Building compound in Freetown on Thursday January 26, 2017, Health and Sanitation Minister, Dr. Abu Bakarr Fofanah noted the challenges faced in the area of drugs distribution from the Central Medical Stores to the districts, and warned against the misuse of the Vehicles.

Dr. Fofanah reiterated government commitment to providing affordable and accessible quality health care services for its people and urged all to act as watch dogs and report any misuse, describing the vehicles as property of the 7 million population to enable the Ministry to be responsive and efficient in the distribution of health commodities and supplies from national to the districts, and to the peripheral health units within the 13 districts.

The Minister thanked the Global Fund for the support, and UNOPS for the procurement, adding that the procured trucks will also help prevent stock out of essential health commodities and supplies at service delivery points.
