Experts in the health sector under the aegis of the Healthcare Transformation Coalition (HTC) have advised the in-coming administration on ways to prioritise healthcare, and ensure quality service delivery for Nigerians.
The coalition in a communique issued after its symposium yesterday in Abuja, said addressing Nigeria’s health challenges required a social contract based on a relationship between the citizens and the state.
The experts said this involves a commitment to the prioritization of the attainment of Universal Health Coverage for the most vulnerable populations, who also bear the highest disease burden.
They said the reforms implemented by the Presidential Candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Ahmed Tinubu, in Lagos State provided a template on how the country could make progress rapidly.

The forum added that the way the healthcare system in Borno State also adapted to the pressures of displaced persons was a lesson in how a resilient health system should evolve.
