Kwara State Receives N887.8 Million To Fund Immunisation

The Kwara State government has secured funding to support infrastructure upgrades in at least one primary healthcare facility in each of the 193 wards of the state from the World Bank.

The Executive Secretary of the state Health Care Development Agency, Dr Nusirat Elelu, made the disclosure on Sunday in a statement in Ilorin, the state capital.

Elelu revealed that the sum of N887.8 million support comes under the Immunisation Plus and Malaria Progress by Accelerating Coverage and Transforming Services project, for which the government has paid a counterpart fund.

The Executive Secretary while attributing the release of the funds to Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq’s constant payment of counterpart funds for different healthcare services said that the governor will formally launch the programme on Monday, January 23, 2023, where cheques will be presented to the benefitting PHCs across the state.

“In the pursuance of Universal Health coverage for Kwarans and repositioning the Primary HealthCare system to be able to meet the demands of all and sundry, the Kwara State Government along with 13 other states have secured a facility to strengthen Primary Health Care centres across the state,” according to the statement.

“This support is coming through the World Bank assisted- IMPACT project through a Decentralised Facility Financing, with an initial disbursement of Investment funds to one Primary Health Care Centre in each of the 193 geopolitical wards in Kwara State.

“This initial investment fund is meant to support the PHCs to achieve an ideal level 2 Primary HealthCare centre, that has the capacity to provide the basic minimum package of health services.

“The utilisation of these funds will be governed by a work plan developed by the health facility staff in conjunction with the Ward Development Committee, to be approved by the Kwara State Primary HealthCare Development Agency."
