Experts in the health sector have expressed concerns over Nigeria’s growing population, saying lack of innovation in the sector is responsible for the trend.

Speaking at a health innovation forum in Abuja, they warned that if left unchecked, the country may not be able to contain the negative effects that will follow.

Worried over the inadequacy of Primary Health Care Centres (PHCCs) in rural areas across the country, they decried government’s poor funding of the health sector, saying policy makers and workers must devise new ideas to encourage family planning and improved access to healthcare.

Director of Research Partnerships and Venture Management, Dirisu Osasuyi, noted that lack of infrastructure and funding is a major challenge to effective health reforms.
