Kwara has received World Bank financing to improve primary healthcare

Kwara State has received World Bank assistance to finance infrastructure upgrades at at least one primary healthcare facility in each of the state’s 193 wards, another result of Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq’s consistent payment of counterpart monies for various healthcare services.

The Governor will formally inaugurate the program on Monday, January 23rd, 2023, with cheques being delivered to PHCs around the state.

In a statement made available to The Guardian on Sunday, Dr. Nusirat Elelu, executive secretary of the Kwara State Health Care Development Agency, said the N887,800,000 support is part of the Immunisation Plus and Malaria Progress by Accelerating Coverage and Transforming Services (IMPACT) project, for which the government has paid a counterpart fund.

Prior to receiving this World Bank funding, His Excellency the Executive Governor of Kwara State showed interest in receiving support for Primary HealthCare Centres in the state and paid the appropriate counterpart fund for the state to be eligible. With this assistance, health centers will increase their infrastructure and service delivery quality. The money will go a long way toward lowering under-five and maternal morbidity and death in the state, as well as assisting in the quick improvement of coverage of essential maternal and child health programs. Kwarans are cordially invited to usher in a new age of better Primary Health Care services.”
