The National Policy on Medical Oxygen, the first of its kind in Nigeria, lays the foundation for the improvement of equitable access to medical oxygen in health facilities in Nigeria.
Indeed, access to quality assured medical oxygen can mean the difference between life and death for patients. In order to safe guard the quality of oxygen from manufacturer to patient, to ensure its appropriate administration to patient, and even to drastically improve the screening of hypoxaemia patients, an enabling environment is required to streamline efforts to ensure that patients receive oxygen therapy when needed.
This policy provides the foundational principles for engaging stakeholders in oxygen supply, distribution, administration, and equipment maintenance. It also reinforces the commitment of the Federal Government of Nigeria to systematic and coordinated improvement in providing life-saving commodities, in this case, medical oxygen, to patients.
The successful implementation of the National Policy on Medical Oxygen will require the sustained involvement and input of all stakeholders. I therefore urge all stakeholders to study the policy carefully and identify how they can contribute to achieving its aims and objectives.
