On September 7, 2021, the President approved the establishment of a Health Sector Reform Committee to kick-start the development and implementation of a Health Sector Reform Programme for Nigeria in collaboration with state governments and the Federal Capital Territory Administration.
Buhari’s decision followed a Health Sector Diagnostic Review Report developed by a consultant, Vesta Healthcare Partners, and the Federal Ministry of Health. jamb results
Osinbajo charged members on the importance of the task ahead, saying, “Mr President, has in several public statements made it clear that a modern, virile and people-centric healthcare system was fundamental to his vision for socio-economic growth”.
Acknowledging these challenges, Osinbajo explained that the government’s primary responsibility is to “put in place the structures and arrangements necessary to boost the efficiency of the healthcare ecosystem, improve healthcare delivery, stem the brain-drain of our health personnel and reduce the pressure on our foreign reserves on account of medical tourism”.
According to him, “There have, of course, been a good number of attempts to reform the healthcare system in Nigeria and many of us who are members-designate of this Committee are familiar with some of these reform efforts, but this particular journey of reforming the Nigerian health sector (and we have heard, I think quite comprehensively from the Hon Minister of Health) began with the commissioning of a Diagnostic Needs Assessment of the Sector.
“Subsequently, the National Council on Privatisation at its meeting of April 12, 2019, approved the appointment of consultants to carry out the assignment, which involved a review of previous reform efforts in the sector, as well as field visits to the 55 Tertiary Health Institutions across the country and some selected sub-regional health institutions”.
