FG Shows Concern on Healthcare Development

The Federal Government is to disburse $1.5 million to each of the 36 states of Nigeria and the federal capital for the financing of the primary health care system.
The minister of health, Professor Isaac Adewole says only 20% of the nation's 30,000 primary health care facilities are workings.

The Minister consequently outlined governments’ plans to revitalise the health sector including cash disbursement to states to finance primary healthcare.

The Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Health, Amina Shamaki, solicited for WHO’s financial and technical support.

The Regional Director of WHO for Africa, Dr. Matshidiso Rebecca, assured the government of the organisation’s support.

She also urged the government to encourage healthcare practitioners to stay in communities where primary healthcare facilities are situated.
