The discontent among many Nigerians arising from the lack of implementation of the National Health Act (NHA) 2014, which has led to massive protests by Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs) and Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) across the country will soon be laid to rest.
This is even as President Muhammadu Buhari has revealed that the provision in the NHA for the Basic Health Care Provision Fund is in the process and will soon be implemented.
President Buhari disclosed this at the flag off of the Primary Health Care (PHC) Revitalisation Programme and Commissioning of the Kuchigoro PHC as a model in Abuja, yesterday.
The PHC revitalisation programme, Buhari said, is aimed at improving access to qualitative basic health care services for the poor.
“I want to assure Nigerians that Government will continue to ensure that great numbers of Nigerians have access to quality basic health care services.
“Accordingly, the provision in the National Health Act, 2014 for the Basic Health Care Provision Fund is in the process of being implemented. I also assure my fellow countrymen and women that our Administration will fulfil all the promises made to the people.
