In a significant development, the Federal Government of Nigeria has secured a generous grant of $9.26 million (Canadian Dollars) from the Canadian Government.
The grant is intended to accelerate COVID-19 vaccine service delivery among high-priority risk groups and bolster the country’s health systems.
The funding will be channeled through the World Health Organization (WHO) Nigeria, which will play a pivotal role in providing technical assistance to enhance health systems and promote the uptake of COVID-19 vaccines.
The WHO’s support will be integrated with routine immunization and other essential Primary Health Care (PHC) services, aiming for a comprehensive and efficient healthcare approach.
The grant’s primary focus will be on the implementation in several states across the country, prioritizing areas with high-risk populations.
The selected states include Benue, Kogi, Taraba, Kebbi, Katsina, Anambra, Ebonyi, Akwa-Ibom, Bayelsa, Delta, Edo, Rivers, Lagos, Ogun, and Ondo.
With this timely financial aid, the Nigerian government anticipates a substantial boost in vaccine distribution and accessibility for vulnerable groups.
Furthermore, the grant’s emphasis on strengthening the health systems will contribute to better overall public health outcomes, particularly during the ongoing battle against the COVID-19 pandemic. (CONTINUE READING HERE)
