NSHIP improves access to health care in Taraba
In its commitment to provide quality health, the Nigeria State Health Investment Project (NSHIP) has improved access to healthcare services at cheaper rates, especially for rural communities in Taraba State.
Consequently, its effort has begun to yield positive results as the programme has covered 47 per cent of the populace.
The Guardian learnt that the World Bank Project, which commenced the execution of its programme in the state in 2017, with Ardo-Kola Local Council as the pilot scheme, has brought affordable healthcare services to the people.
Briefing journalists yesterday in Jalingo on the success of the programme, state Project Coordinator, Dr. Ezekiel Ubanus, said the project was aimed at increasing delivery and use of high impact maternal and child health interventions.
