Universal Health Coverage

He said primary health care all over the world, required adequate financing and service delivery to achieve Universal Health Coverage (UHC) by 2030.
“High performing health systems recognise the importance of effective primary health care service as a key driver towards achieving universal health coverage.

“Also, strengthening universal health coverage relies strongly on the primary health care structures across Nigeria being able to deliver individual-based care and essential public health to all,’’ he said.

He added that the forum would take stock of approaches to financing primary health care in states and identifying common challenges and policy responses.

According to him, the forum will also develop a shared understanding on the way forward for financing primary health care in a comprehensive and sustainable manner.

“The event looks promising, which shows the importance the ecosystem places on this type of activity.

“We are grateful to all our partners and everyone that has registered,’’ Filani said.
