Al-Ameen College of Health Sciences and Technology, Kaduna has matriculated 135 students into the combined session of 2015/2016 and 2016/2017.

The matriculated students are of the Dental, Environmental and Health information management of the institution.

Speaking on the matriculation, the Deputy provost of the school, Mrs Rosemary Attiogbey said the Health institution was established basically to compliment governments efforts at addressing challenges particularly that of manpower shortage in the health sector.

She said, “the health challenges is one that requires adequate attention but there seems to be inadequate health personnel to handle such challenges, hence the need to come together as health personnels and establish this health institution to help bridge the gap.

Earlier, the guest speaker, Rector Jigawa State Polytechnic Dutse Professor Garba Uba Goje who spoke on the topic ‘the complimentary role of private health training institutions in national development’ said the government has the authority to bring public and private Institutions to the same table and help them to establish productive partnerships.

He averred that research has shown that there is a gap in trained personnel particularly in professions such as doctors, nurses, midwives, community health workers, environmental health. Workers, pharmacists among others, adding that most government institutions lack the funding. To training large number of personnel “it is theduty of the private sector to. See how. Possible they. Can help bridge the gap” he said.

Professor Goje who was represented by the director academic planning from Ahmadu Bello University Zaria, Dr Mohammed Jamil Ibrahim said research carried out by the World Health Organization (WHO) shows that “in Nigeria alone, the mortality rate of children under 5 years old was estimated at 201 per 1,000live births, maternal mortality. Was about 800 per 100,000 live births, total fertility was 5.7.

Children per woman, modern contraceptive methods have 8 percent prevalence rate, adult HIV prevalence was estimated at 5 percent and immunization rates are low with only 13. Percent of 1 year olds receiving all of their recommended vaccinations (World Bank) “.

He therefore posited that,”the outcome suggest that the health care system is struggling” hence the need for private sectors to compliment government efforts.
