The deployment of these health workers is precipitated by the overwhelming state of the nation’s health care system after the sudden fire disaster at Wellington that claimed many lives and left many more hospitalized.

The Minister of Health & Sanitation, Dr. Austin Demby gracefully relayed his appreciation to WHO for facilitating the deployment and was more so appeased that this timely intervention came from a sister nation Senegal.

Subsequently, the medical team will meet with the Incident Management Team at the Emergency Operations Centre (EOC) where they will be further deployed to hospitals and other areas of need.
