The next states who will be receiving these clinic trucks are include Lagos state, Anambra state, River state, Kano state, Gombe state and Kwara states.

These trucks will be available for medical screening, diagnosis and consultations, treatment and drug prescription, and referral services.

MTN Foundation continues to support the efforts of the Federal and State Ministries of Health to improve the healthcare in Nigeria through innovative solutions.

It can be recalled that about a year ago and at the peak of COVID-19 pandemic, the MTN Foundation delivered over 70,000 pieces of essential personal protection equipment (first batch) to the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC).

This was following MTN’s commitment of N500 million to support the acquisition of critical medical supplies for healthcare professionals on the frontlines.

The consignment includes: 30160 N95 masks, 8000 aprons, 2000 pairs of boots, 11,000 disposable gowns, and 20,000 items of protective clothing.
