FG Launches Primary Healthcare ‘Leadership Challenge’

The National Primary Healthcare Development Agency (NPHCDA) has launched a primary health care leadership challenge to access service delivery across the country.
Executive Director, NPHCDA, Dr Faisal Shuaib, disclosed this in Abuja Sunday during the inauguration of the independent judging panel of the leadership challenge.
The PHC leadership challenge is organised in collaboration with the Nigeria Governors Forum, Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, UNICEF, Aliko Dangote Foundation and other partners.
Shuaib said improvements for PHC service delivery had not been significant.
He said despite the level of investments in primary healthcare at the sub-national level, there had not been a commensurate improvement in the rate of maternal and child mortality.
The chairman of the independent judging panel of the PHC leadership challenge, Prof. Clara Ejembi of the Department of Community Medicine Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria, said they would assess the performance of state governors in terms of their efforts to reform and finance and implement primary healthcare in the states.
