A group under the auspices of Save the Children, has lamented the state of healthcare infrastructure in Nigeria.
Presenting the overview of the project at a hotel in Kaduna, Project Manager, Ifedili Innocent lamented that, the state of healthcare infrastructure in Nigeria remains very poor due to inadequate budgetary provision, releases and efficient utilization of available resources.
Project Manager of the group, Ifedili Innocent disclosed this during the launching of a four-year health and nutrition advocacy project funded by Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation in Kaduna State, yesterday.
Innocent explained that In 2014, the presidential summit on Universal Health Coverage (UHC) held in Nigeria, recognized that health is a fundamental human rights.
According to him, Nigeria Health Watch stated in one of its reports that the health sector was reduced to a less significant sector in terms of Nigeria’s national priorities during the last five-year’s annual budgets.
