 According to Dr. Banigo the Health policies of the State Government are so intensive now when compared to what we had in the first tenure, noting that the abolition of user fees for People Living With HIV is a deliberate policy to give them succor and unfettered access to Medicare, while stressing that it is immoral for any child to die of HIV.

Dr. Banigo who is the Breast Feeding Champion of the State called on operators of public and  private health facilities to recommit to the baby friendly hospital routine and educate nursing mothers on the importance of breastfeeding, adding that this would go a long way in reducing issues of malnutrition and stunted growth amongst newborn babies.
