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.

Review: Thule Force XL 2019 Review

Coming in third place in our audit, the Thule Force is a strong, better than expected housetop freight box. We like its smooth, unassuming look, tough top, and phenomenal mounting framework however docked it focuses for its abnormal bolt and absence of handle. At $590, this present box's nearest rival was the Yakima SkyBox Carbonite, which we granted our Best Buy Award. While we think the SkyBox is a somewhat better an incentive as far as day by day usability, you might need to consider the Force if day by day utilize is to a lesser degree a factor for you than simple establishment. This crate was scarcely pushed out for that grant, and we do think it is an extraordinary esteem that will probably address most if not the entirety of your issues.
