The Chairman and CEO of the Foundation, Dr. Paul Basil Iloegbouba stressed the Foundation’s commitment and dedication to helping people and adding value to their lives by improving their health status.

“PBIF was born out of the need to assist people with their medical needs and help solve their health problems. We’ve been doing this since 2014 and this is the 15th free medical outreach we’ve organised.”

He also noted that there’re strategies and plans put in place for feedback mechanisms, attending to emergency cases requiring immediate medical attention, follow up initiatives and continued support beyond the free medical outreach which was made possible through the collaboration with Association of Resident Doctors, nurses, med-lab scientists, pharmacists, physiotherapists, other health professionals from Parklane Teaching Hospital and other health Institutions.


Also present at the free medical outreach was a team of health supervisors from Enugu State Ministry of Health led by the Special Adviser to Enugu State Governor on Health Matters, Dr. Yomi Jaye.

Dr. Jaye expressed profound delight, appreciation and satisfaction at the incredible community service exhibited by the Paul Basil Iloegbouba Foundation.

“We’re glad that we have well meaning Ndi Enugu, willing to add value to the people of Enugu State. It is commendable that you all have collaborated to make this happen”.


He declared that the administration of Gov. Peter Mbah was committed to changing the face of healthcare system in Enugu State and the Ministry of Health will stop at nothing to make sure the health care system was revamped.

He further commended the Foundation for its selfless service to the people of Enugu, noting that the Foundation had made an indelible mark in this present administration and the State generally.

“In one way or the other, the Foundation has helped the administration to breach the health needs gap, they have solved some problems and added to the goal and mandate of ‘Tomorrow Is Here’.

“I want to say thank you to all the facilitators of this program especially the President and Vice-President of PBIF and the medical cordinator Dr. Ofornere Chukwunonso Nnabuike, who also happens to be a senior resident in the department of Obstetrics & Gynecology and the President of the Association of Resident Doctors in the most cosmopolitan State which is Enugu State. I pray that God will make you greater and increase your efforts”.

While speaking to Pacesetter, Dr. Ofornere noted that the collaboration to organise and participate in the medical outreach was part of programs to mark the Annual General Meeting and Scientific Conference week by Nigerian physicians.

“During this scientific conference we normally reach out to the populace so that they will benefit from our skill and knowledge as Doctors. It’s part of our corporate social responsibilities that we give to people of Enugu State.

“Because we’re in Enugu we want to have a city wide medical and surgical outreach for our people especially the indingent ones, those that are unable to access care because of finance contraints. They can come here to receive medical services free of charge”.
