The Lagos State Ministry of Health and the Lagos State Waterways have combined efforts to make medical services easily accessible to those in the riverine communities. Now, with the launch of the Floating Clinic, emergency health services are available on the waterways.
The Floating Clinic is designed to operate as a clinic on the water and is equipped with four medical
observation beds, medium sterilization unit, o2 bottle,
gauge, infusion stand, foldable stretcher, fully kitted first
aid box, and other essential medical items.
With the advent of this initiative, medical services will be easily facilitated, and the mortality rates on the waterways will experience a significant decline.
