Some persons with disabilities (PWDs) and health practitioners in Nigeria have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to provide easy access to quality healthcare for the PWDs.

The agreement was signed by the All-Rights Foundation Africa on behalf of the PWDs and the National Association of Government General Medical and Dental Practitioners in Abuja.

Chief Executive Officer, TAF Africa, Ambassador Jake Epelle, said the MoU signing was germane, and that a bill would be put together for the National Assembly to enable the PWDs to gain easy access to healthcare services.

“The MoU with the association is very pivotal for us because this is one group of medical practitioners that do not go on strike. They are providing health services for the primary and rural areas.

“They are very key in our strategies to gain easy access to quality health for PWDs in general. Most people that went blind could not have gone blind if they were detected early. Most visually impaired challenges were not detected on time. There is a need for an organisation like this association to implement the policy of testing the eyes before the child goes to school,” Epelle said.
