He instructed all the councils to submit  quarterly progress reports on CHF implementation . he stressed on medicines and medical supplies availability at health facilities and commended HPSS’s efforts to introduce Prime Vendor initiative which will contribute into medicine availability hence offering an opportunity for CHF members to access quality health services.
