Fed Govt to raise access to healthcare


Minister of State for Health and Social Welfare, Dr Tunji Alausa, has said Federal Government will provide quality and affordable healthcare. This, he said, led to increase in allocation to health and social services in the budget.

The minister noted the government has developed blueprint on provision of universal health coverage (UHC) aimed at “saving lives, reducing physical and financial pain, improving population health outcomes, accountability, maternal and child health, governance, affordable and quality health services.”

Alausa spoke at the investiture of Dr Peter Ebeigbe as 23rd President of National Postgraduate Medical College of Nigeria (NPMCN), Ijanikin, Lagos.

He said the sector and healthcare delivery are vital to implementation of the “eight -point” agenda of the administration of President Bola Tinubu.

The minister urged the college to train more specialists to provide improved health care through modern clinical practice, research, teaching; and regulating postgraduate medical education.
