The existing partnership between the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board and Project C.U.R.E, medical equipment donor agency, has been described as a much-needed boon to the health sector in the country. This is against the backdrop of the donation of world-class medical equipment to selected health facilities in the country by Project C.U.R.E through a process midwifed by the Board. The formal presentation of the first containers of donated medical equipment to arrive the country was handed over to one of the beneficiary health institutions, the University of Ilorin Teaching Hospital, on 17th June, 2022, on the premises of the Hospital. The Registrar of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board(JAMB) Prof. Is-haq Oloyede, in his address on the occasion, stated that the unveiling of the donated equipment at the premises of the University Teaching Hospital marked the culmination of efforts to facilitate the donation of the eleven containers that had been cleared and on transit to their respective beneficiary health institutions. He pointed out that the Board had keyed into the partnership in view of the enormous advantages inherent in such a venture as part of its Corporate Social Responsibility towards the fatherland and, in effect, boost the capacity of the health sector in the country. In his words: “The intervention of the Board in the area of health care delivery is to support government's efforts aimed at addressing the huge medical infrastructural gap.” Continuing, Prof. Oloyede said, “In order to uplift the country's educational and health institutions, the Board will continue to prune down its expenses through prudence, the adoption of relevant cost-saving technology, and other strategies to free up resources to support these two critical sectors of our national life through such programmes as the current medical intervention from Project C.U.R.E and the NATAP-M Awards through which the Board provide financial support to support infrastructural development in award winning institutions with half a billion naira annually.

 He thanked the Hon. Minister of Education, Malam Adamu Adamu, and the Federal Government for the approval of the increase of the grant from ₦500 to ₦750 million naira with effect from 2023." The Registrar expressed appreciation to Project C.U.R.E for its strategic Ilorin Teaching hospital, Prof. Abdullahi Yusuf, was full of praises for JAMB for identifying such an opportunity and said the equipment would bridge the infrastructure gap in the University of Ilorin Teaching Hospital (UITH) thereby enhancing its capacity to provide quality health services. According to him, “Nigeria has qualified health personnel who had to work without sufficient equipment for them to demonstrate their competence. He assured the Board and Project C.U.R.E that the equipment would be put to good use to achieve the aims of the donor agency. The former Chairman of the Board, Dr Emmanuel Ndukwe, whose tenure witnessed the birth of the partnership said he was not surprised that the partnership has produced such a massive infrastructure support and urged the hospital to put the equipment to good use. Alh. Yusuf Ali, SAN , a philanthropist who had built a Trauma Centre at UITH pleaded with the Board and other public spirited Nigerians to extend the intervention to General Hospitals across the country as they are the first port of call for patients. He commended JAMB for being selfless and thoughtful in the management of public resources for the benefit of all. The intervention was meant for twelve beneficiary health facilities in all the six geopolitical zones in the country but one of the hospitals had withdrawn from the process to leave eleven beneficiary health facilities. The items of equipment donated to UITH included: Angle Poise Lamp, Ventilators, Consumables, Mattress, OG Couch, Genecology Chairs, Treatment Tables, Treadmill Machine, Crutches, ICU beds, Urinary Catheters, Defibrillator Machines, Laparoscopy Machines, Needle and Syringes, Wheel Chairs, Oxygen Concentrators, Suction Machines, Endoscopy Machines, among others.
