Lagos State Government, yesterday, disclosed that its on-going outreach will reach not less than 50,000 residents, to cushion the effect of the economic hardship on Lagosians.

The outreach, tagged ‘Alafia Eko’, which commenced yesterday, will cover six health districts, with specific locations for each.

The state government also announced that the second outreach will begin by June 6 and that each health district will host four outreach events in the first phase.

The Special Advisor to the Governor on Health, Dr Kemi Ogunyemi, who gave insight into the significance of the initiative, also said that each event would target 1,000 citizens, totalling approximately 25,000 individuals for the first phase.
