Read the new National Health Bill

1 Mins read

Quoting Prof Grange, our last Minsiter of Health:

“….the absence of a National Health Act to back up the National Health Policy has been a fundamental weakness which needed to be tackled frontally. This weakness means that there is no health legislation describing the national health system and defining the roles and responsibilities of the three tiers of government and other stakeholders in the system. This has led to confusion, duplication of functions and sometimes lapses in the performance of essential public health functions”

Thanks to Felix Obi, a strong supporter of this blog….we can now make available to you the new National Health Bill as passed by the Nigerian Senate.

The BILL is for your HEALTH. READ IT HERE!

Have a say, pass it round,….don’t leave it politicians…

ps…the bill will still be heard by the House of Representatives before it is sent to the president. It only becomes law when it passes these 2 stages.
