The Organisation in a statement issued yesterday by its Media Advisor, Olaide Shokunbi said Sen. Tejuosho is to deliver the keynote address, Budget Implementation and The Oversight Functions of The Legislature, and unveil the FundNaijaHealth logo, while members of a discussion panel will examine topics around the theme, Budget Releases and Implications on Health Budget Performance.
“The panel will include representatives of the ministries of National Planning, Finance, and Health, and the National Primary Health Care Development Agency (NPHCDA).”
It added that Doyen of the Nigerian development sector, Deacon Mike Egboh, will chair the event, while other invited guests and dignitaries are the President/Founder of Wellbeing Foundation Africa, Mrs Toyin Ojora Saraki; President, Association for Reproductive and Family Health, Prof. Oladapo Ladipo; Country Director, Nigeria Urban Reproductive Health Initiative (NURHI-2), Dr Mojisola Odeku, and veteran development sector leader, Dr Jerome Mafeni.
According to the statement, the United Nations agencies, including UNICEF, UNFPA, and WHO are also expected at the event at which there will be experience sharing around some of the health challenges that follow poor budgeting and untimely releases.
“Dr Laz Ude Eze, an Abuja-based activist and medical practitioner will speak on such health challenges.
The launch, which is scheduled for the Sheraton Abuja Hotel on Monday, 4 June, will be the highpoint of the 2018 edition of the annual MamaYe Day programme of the organisation, which has been traditionally devoted to advocating and raising issues around Maternal and Newborn Health.
