Medical and Health Workers Union of Nigeria (MHWUN), has vowed to mobilise its members to support the Federal Government in its efforts to combat the Ebola virus in the country. Medical and health workers union is the conglomeration of all other health practitioners in the country with the exception of medical doctors. The group commended the Federal Government for its efforts in combating the Ebola outbreak in the country.
In a statement signed by its President, Ayuba Waba, the medical workers called on the Nigeria Medical Association (NMA) to suspend its strike in the interest of the country. “It is a truism that all hands have to be on deck for the health emergency facing us now to be properly addressed.” Primary stakeholders are professionals and workers in the health sector. “Steps being taken include Training the Trainers workshops and the stepping down of the expanded knowledge base and capacity. This would generate to all the states and LGAs in the country, and the development of necessary Information Education and Communication materials for a massive awareness campaign. “MHWUN shall do all in its power to consolidate on the good steps being taken by the FGN and all well spirited Nigerians,” he stated.
