Health Minister, Adewole Bans Chloroquine For Malaria Treatment

The Federal Government of Nigeria has banned the use of chloroquine and artemisinin monotherapy for the treatment of malaria.



The Minister of Health, Prof. Isaac Adewole, who made this announcement, stated that about N300bn was being lost annually by the Federal Government in the treatment and prevention of the disease.

According to him, the losses were incurred in government’s efforts to tackle the scourge in the country.

Adewole spoke on Tuesday in Abuja, during the commemoration of this year’s World Malaria Day.

Speaking on the theme, “End Malaria for Good: What is your Role?” The minister said, “With a new emphasis on citizen accountability and rights, I want you as a Nigerian citizen to challenge your health care provider and ask questions.

“When you have malaria and somebody wants to prescribe drugs for you, ask the health care provider: ‘Have you confirmed this is malaria?’ It is your right.

“As a citizen when your healthcare provider prescribes chloroquine or artemisinin monotherapy, say no. Doctors and nurses have been told that chloroquine is no longer useful and that it is wrong to prescribe artemisin monotherapy. For the healthcare provider, do not treat malaria without diagnosis.

“Tell yourself, ‘I must not prescribe chloroquine. I must not prescribe monotherapy for artemisinin when what we should prescribe is a combination therapy”, the minister emphasised.

The Double Door Fridge With Enough Space

The initial step you should take in picking a cooler is to make sense of what size will fit in your kitchen, at that point settle on the entryway style. Today, the vast majority have a tendency to go for French entryway coolers since they look smooth and have wide retires and drawers that keep products of the soil at eye level. You may lean toward a one next to the other model in the event that you need a greater cooler, an exemplary best cooler in case you're on a financial plan, or a counter-profundity ice chest to spare important space and give your kitchen an airier feel. (We prescribe particular models in our manual for the best refrigerators). What we don't cover in this guide are claim to fame coolers, as inherent or incorporated units, yet our recommendation on the highlights to consider when purchasing any new ice chest will apply to those, as well.

Buying Guide: Rohloff Nevo GX Review

Riese and Müller have a long and fascinating history planning bikes. Everything started with a non-electric, full suspension, collapsing bicycle called the Birdy. The refinement of this model prompted a way of thinking of "control innovation" meaning to keep wheels on the ground, giving footing. Despite the fact that the Nevo line is just specced with front suspension, the SR Suntour Air fork they picked offers a lot of customizability (droop, pressure, bounce back), and the expansion of a suspension seat post, locking ergonomic grasps, and more extensive edges and tires offers a great deal of solace and soundness. The greater part of the progression through or wave style electric bicycles that I have tried and evaluated throughout the years experience the ill effects of edge flex.
