NAF conducts free medical outreach in Azare, commissions more accommodation for personnel serving in bauchi

The Nigerian Air Force has commenced a 5-day medical outreach for the people of Azare in Katagum local government area of Bauchi state.

The move is part of NAF's leadership policy aimed at improving access to healthcare delivery for host communities.


The medical outreach, which was held at the Azare Township Stadium, attracted large turnout of residents who were grateful to the NAF for its humanitarian gesture and improved civil-military relations efforts with the people of the community.

During the 5-day medical outreach, which is expected to end on Sunday, January 28, various medical conditions would be diagnosed and treated while those with complex medical cases would be transferred to the Federal Medical Centre, Azare for further medical attention.


The Federal Medical Centre, Azare has promised to make available its surgical room to the NAF Medical Team to carry out surgeries throughout the period.

The first day of the medical outreach was attended by the Makama of Katagum, Alhaji Aliyu Hussani who represented the Emir of Katagum, His Royal Highness Baba Umar Faruq.
