Kebbi implements harmonised primary healthcare
The Kebbi State Government, with support from United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) and the European Union (EU), have begun the process of implementing primary healthcare under one roof.
Executive Secretary of the State Primary Health Care Development Agency (SPHCDA), Abubakar Kaoje, said this would guarantee the needed efficiency in primary healthcare management and ensure better service delivery to women and children in the state.
He added that UNICEF was supporting the renovation and equipping of 140 out of the 225 PHCs. UNICEF Project Coordinator in the state, AbdulHafiz Ishawo, described the development as the outcome of sustained advocacy efforts of development partners driven by UNICEF, adding that UNICEF and EU were supporting the state to take stock of the status of all PHCs in the state, determine what they are doing and the existing gaps.
