Support PHC revitalisation, NPHCDA boss tasks stakeholders

The 36 state gov­ernors, local gov­ernment chair­men and stakeholders in the Primary Health Care sector across the country have been charged to support the ongoing revitalisation of Primary Healthcare Centres (PHC) by the President Muhammadu Buhari-led government.
The newly-appointed Executive Director of the National Primary Health Care Develop­ment Agency (NPHC­DA), Dr Faisal Shuaib, made the appeal while addressing staff of the Agency, in Abuja yes­terday.
While describing the PHC revitalisation as the best thing that has happened to Nigeria’s health sector in recent years, Dr Faisal called on stakeholders in the sector to make the best of the opportunity to ensure effective and ef­ficient primary health­care delivery to Nige­rians, particularly the poor in the rural areas.
He, therefore, ap­pealed to staff of the agency to imbibe posi­tive change of attitude in favour of transpar­ency, patriotism and corrupt – free culture, capable of restoring Nigerians’ confidence in the leadership of the nation’s Primary health­care sub-sector.
It would be recalled that President Buhari announced the appoint­ment of Dr Shuaib as the new Executive Di­rector of NPHCDA on Wednesday January 11, 2017.
