In line with the health vision of her O5 Initiative pet project, the wife of the Delta State Governor, Dame Edith Okowa has established and equipped a sickle cell clinic at the Central Hospital Ughelli, Ughelli North Local Government Area.

The laboratory section of the clinic was equipped with electro phorenses machine, haemocritic centrifuge and auto haemotology anlyser sysmex.

The gesture is the second after the establishment and equipping of a sickle cell clinic at the Central Hospital Agbor, Ika north east local government area, few months after her husband was sworn in as the Delta State Governor.

The clinic would among other things, provide easy access to medical records of sickle cell clients registered in the hospital, remove delays in attending to the patients and increase awareness about the disorder.
