| May 24, 2013 More

OVER 200 women with cases of Vasco Vaginal Fistula (VVF) have been treated at the General Hospital Ningi, Bauchi State, while 60 others are awaiting treatment, according the nursing officer in charge of the clinic, Smaila Mato Jahun.

Speaking with journalists Thursday in Ningi Local Council of the state, he said the centre was facing the problem of manpower as there was only a VVF specialist in the entire hospital.

Jahun stated that the hospital, in collaboration with Engender Health and other donor agencies, had to make an arrangement with experts from Sokoto State to carry out surgeries periodically.

He lamented that sometimes, not all the patients who booked got treated due to lack of manpower and late information.

He said that during the treatment, the state government fed the patients free and provided drugs and other logistics.
