Nigerian Government to Rehabilitate 70 Hospitals by katty : January 05, 2018, 09:11:42 PM
 The Federal Government has earmarked seventy hospitals across the country for a special health intervention project aimed at tackling critical challenges in the health sector.
 
They are: 21 Federal Teaching Hospitals, 31 Federal Medical Centres, Four Specialist Hospitals and 14 Fistula and Cleft lip/palate Centres.
 
Briefing newsmen yesterday in Abuja, Minister of Health, Professor Isaac Adewole, said the ministry flagged off the project following consultations with stakeholders on the need to scale up and smoothen operations in healthcare facilities across the country.
 
He said the core objectives of the project includes: To strengthen and reposition tertiary health institutions for better performance, to make the facilities self-sustainable and attractive to large number of patients they cater for; to strengthen their research capabilities; to reduce medical tourism arising from obsolete equipment and infrastructure and to facilitate the attainment of universal Health coverage (UHC) in Nigeria.
 
The Minister said the National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS) designed the Tertiary health Institution Intervention project as a means to address some of the critical challenges facing the health sector as enshrined in the Act establishing the scheme.
