Buhari promises to implement law on PHC services

Buhari promises to implement law on PHC services

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.
