Hon Mrs Ada Charles yesterday flagged off the therapeutic efficacy study project in Akpet one.
Accompanied by the Vice chairman, Hon Barr Oyoyo Owai, the secretary of council Hon Daniel Enang, the supervisor for health Mrs Amatey, and a host of others, flagged off the project officially while declaring the community health centre opened for the world health organisations team.
The study which is aimed to check
Antimalarial drug efficacy, is assessed through therapeutic efficacy studies (TES).
The project is conducted in three different zones in the country, and my LGA being selected as the test centre for the South south region gives me happiness. I watched more than 30 of my people undergo the test and was assured by the project team that those tested will be treated accordingly.
TES are conducted in a controlled environment in which drug administration is supervised, the results of microscopic examinations of blood films are validated, and the origin and quality of the drugs are verified.
The exercise moved smoothly, with a hundred percent response and comportment from the people of Akpet One in Biase local government.
