Health is wealth. As health outcomes improve, Gross Domestic Product (GDP) increases. Healthy workers are more productive workers. Healthy citizens live longer and contribute more to their societies. The goals of our health care policy are to enhance access and improve quality of health care in Nigeria.
To this end, our government will boost healthcare financing, drive towards Universal Primary Healthcare Access by 2020 by enrolling all Nigerians in the National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS), reform the NHIS to assure access to high quality care for all enrollees, enhance primary healthcare training, fast-track adoption of electronic data management in the health sector, enhance quality of medical training, and rapidly address maternal and child mortality through training and community support.
