Expert urge FG to release Basic Health Care Provision Fund + Video

Dr. Emmanuel Abanida, Senior Technical Adviser, Development Research and Project Center (DRPC) says the non-release of the Basic Health Care Provision Fund (BHCPF) of the National Health Act by the Federal Government is worrisome, delicate and dangerous.

He said this at a Strategy Session on advocacy for the implementation of BHCPF organised by Partnership to Engage, Reform and Learn (PERL), a programme of the Department for International Development (DFID).

Abanida said it was a source of concern that the fund which was captured in the 2018 budget was not released less than 45 days to the end of the year and that this was a dangerous indication for provision of health care services for the citizens.

Abanida urged President Muhammadu Buhari to ensure the release of the fund immediately to save lives of the indigent citizens who need access to health care services.
