As community health or primary Healthcare becomes the focus of health care delivery worldwide with a focus on universal health coverage, the Director-General of the Cross River State Primary Healthcare Development Agency, Dr. Janet David Ekpenyong has called on the leadership of Calabar Municipality for a partnership leading towards effective healthcare delivery in the state capital. 

The director-general of the Cross River State Primary Healthcare Development Agency, Dr. Janet Ekpenyong has solicited for a worthy working relationship between the agency and the council for effective healthcare delivery for Cross Riverians.

The DG, who made the appeal during a call on the Mayor of the Municipal Council, Hon. Nta Eke, who was recently sworn into office said, for efficiency in service delivery and dividend to be felt by citizens, the area council as well as the Agency responsible for grassroots mobilization of Healthcare workers must collaborate to ensure that quality services are maintained in line with best global practices.

In his response, the Chairman of Calabar Municipal Council and Mayor of Calabar, Honourable Nta Eke disclosed that Primary Healthcare services are topmost on the council's priority list as he seeks to collaborate with the Cross River State Primary Healthcare Development Agency in adopting its scope of operation to obtain results.

Hon Nta said the Primary Health care Agency has done enormously well in sensitizing Cross Riverians across the state on various covid19 protocols which he said are well adopted in all Local Government Areas today and as such the policies of the agency will be adopted to provide effective, efficient and quality healthcare services to residents of Calabar Municipality.
