Delta goes into partnership with Koolboks for supply of solar refrigerators
Director-General of Delta State Contributory
Healthcare Scheme, Dr Ben Nkechika who signed on
behalf of the State Government, said the agreement
was aimed at a more effective healthcare delivery in the state.
Apart from being the supplier, Nkechika said Koolboks
would also be responsible for the maintenance of the
solar refrigerators, lamenting that lack of electricity had always led to the compromise of the effectiveness of vaccines in rural health facilities.
