The Government of Cross River State has received 19 motorcycles from the World Health Organization (WHO) to support its health surveillance system in interior areas not easily accessible by vehicles.

Speaking separately, the State Commissioner for Health and maiden CrossRiverWatch Man Of The Year, Dr. Inyang Asibong and the Director General, Cross River State Primary Healthcare Development Agency, Dr. Betta Edu lauded the support of the World Health Organization.

They pledged to ensure that the 19 motorcycles are used for the purpose they are meant for.

According to them, the intervention is timely and the motorcycles will play a vital role in active surveillance through visitation to community health facilities and linking with remote communities during outbreak of diseases.

On his part, the State Coordinator of WHO, Dr. Tom Igbu maintained that Cross River State has been a long standing partner of the World Health Organization and “We are obliged to support where we see the need.”

The bikes were later handed to the State Disease Surveillance and Notification Officers unit.
