Mr. Olson reiterated that decent work in the health sector, is fundamental to ensuring effective and resilient health systems, adding “The health sector is essentially about people; without health workers there can be no health care.”
Ten pulse Oximeters, ten forehead thermometers, and ten electronic blood Pressure monitors were separately presented to each of the two medical facilities.
This donation is Mr. Olson’s second contribution to the fight against COVID as he continues to explore avenues to beef up Government’s efforts.
