About In Brief: Ilesa College Of Health Technology
Nigeria adopted the Basic Health Service Scheme in 1977 as a method for satisfying its residents’ health requirements (BHSS). This idea was similar to the 1978 notion of Primary Health Care (PHC). The Federal Government determined that there was a need to expand the strength of middle-level workers in the health-care industry, thus suitable health-care institutions were established to train such personnel.
The College of Health Technology, Ilesa, was founded in Oyo State, and is currently in Osun State.
In September 1977, the College began academic programs with two cadres of officers: Public Health Superintendents, now known as Environmental Health Technologists, and Community Health Assistants, now known as Community Health Extension Workers (CHEW). These two cadres took out from a temporary location near the current State Hospital in Ilesa on Muroko Road, Ilesa.
Between 1977 and 1985, when the College moved to its current and permanent location in January 1985, both former and present tutors worked tirelessly at the temporary facility.
The Oyo State Ministry of Health, through the Secondary Health Care and Training Department, was the College’s highest ruling authority from September 1977 till the creation of Osun State. Between August 1990 and January 1991, the baton was passed to the jurisdiction of the Osun State Ministry of Health’s Secondary Health Care Department.
By February 1, 1991, the College had been transferred to the Ministry of Health’s Directorate of Primary Health Care. More courses were added by the middle of 1991, including the Community Health Officers Course, Community Health Supervisor Course, and the Health Assistant Cadre.
Some of the courses that had experienced setbacks the previous year were revived this year. All of this was made possible by the foresight of the late Dr. B. AdeyeOluwa, the then Director of Primary Health Care.
The Directorate of Primary Health Care and Disease Control is currently the College’s highest ruling authority. The College operated two satellite campuses, Ikirun and Iwo, between February 1991 and 1997. Junior Community Health Extension Workers (JCHEW) were trained on the Ikirun campus, while Health Assistants were taught on the Iwo campus. On the main campus in Ilesa, all trainees ran a program with the kids. Due to logistical issues, satellite campuses were eventually phased out.
A bill formally establishing the College was presented to the Osun State House of Assembly by the then Honorable Commissioner for Health, Pharmacist ‘Lanre Afolabi, who supported the bill and presented it to the then Governor, His Excellency, Prince Olagunsoye Oyinlola, from where the bill was passed.
For the majority of 2004 and the first half of 2005, the bill passed through readings and deliberations in the State House of Assembly. On July 8, 2005, the Governor signed Osun State College of Health Technology Ilesa, Establishment Law No. 2, 2005, which was legally endorsed by His Excellency Prince Olagunsoye Oyinlola.
In the year 2000, the College sent 24 Higher National Diploma graduates in Environmental Health Technology to the National Youth Service (N.Y.S.C. ), while six others received an Exemption Certificate after reaching the age of 30. The College is now led by Dr. Fritz M. Olaoye, who is also the Provost.
Mr. Kayode Adegoke is the Permanent Secretary Ministry of Health, and Dr. Rafiu Isamotu is the Honourable Commissioner for Health. Dr. Olu’Gbenga Oyinlola is the Special Adviser on Health to Mr. Governor. Mr. Kayode Adegoke serves as Chairman of a Five-Man Governing Board that oversees the College’s activities. Other members of the Committee include Dr. Kayode A. B. Ogunniyi, Mr. Najeem Akintola, Mr. Gbenga Fadele, and Mr. Seyi Falode, who serves as secretary.

The organisation argues that health resources should be distributed equally because everyone has the same basic necessities for survival. Training competent health care professionals to meet the ever-changing health needs of individuals and communities is one of the College’s goals, with the goal of achieving a level of health that allows an individual to be productive and useful to himself, his family, community, and society at large.
