Kano State Independent Research Centre Trust to Commence Full Clinical Services
Kano State Independent Research Centre Trust (KIRCT) is set to begin full clinical services next month, aiming to enhance healthcare delivery in Kano State. The Centre also plans to continue providing periodic free medical interventions, acknowledging that some patients may not be able to afford their clinical services. During an outreach programme, the Centre attended to over 2,000 patients, diagnosing common ailments and referring more severe cases to collaborating hospitals for emergency treatment.

Kano State Independent Research Centre Trust (KIRCT) has announced its plans to commence full clinical services in the Centre, as part of its efforts to complement healthcare delivery in the state.

The Chief Medical Director (CMD) of the Centre, Dr. Jameel Ismail Ahmed, addressed journalists during an outreach programme held at the Centre in Dawaki-Kudu. He stated that the Centre would begin clinical services by next month, with a focus on surgical care. However, the Centre will also continue to provide free medical interventions periodically, recognizing the financial limitations some patients might face.

The outreach programme, organized as part of the Centre's social responsibility, witnessed an impressive turnout of patients. By mid-day, the medical team had attended to over 2,000 patients, and they expected to treat around 3,000 patients by the end of the day.

Dr. Ahmed explained that the patients predominantly presented with common ailments such as cough, malaria, and cold, along with non-communicable diseases like hypertension and diabetes. The Centre provided the patients with basic investigations, medications, and treatments.

However, for patients with more complex medical conditions that couldn't be treated at the Centre, Dr. Ahmed assured the public that they had established collaborations with other hospitals. These partnerships would enable them to refer patients quickly and facilitate emergency attention.

The Chief Medical Director also reassured the people of Kano State that the Centre would continue organizing similar free medical interventions. He highlighted a recent outreach programme held in the Tarauni area of the state capital.

The Kano State Independent Research Centre Trust was established by Pfizer for the Kano State Government in 2013. Its primary objective is to conduct biomedical and healthcare research on communicable and non-communicable diseases.
