Abia State Wins The 2022 Gold Badge Award By The National Primary Health Care Development Agency

Abia State has been declared the winner of the 2022 Gold Badge Award by the National Primary Health Care Development Agency (NPHCDA) under its Primary Healthcare Under One Roof programme

In a statement by Abia PDP Vice Chairman/Acting State Publicity Secretary, Elder Abraham Amah, the PHCUOR is a Primary Healthcare reform agenda aimed at reversing fragmentation in primary healthcare delivery at the state-level and bringing the management, resources, financing and other operational responsibilities under one body, the State Primary Health Care Board (SPHCB).
The programme has been ongoing since 2011 and represents one of the best efforts of the Federal Government to make primary healthcare accessible to Nigerians at all levels and the collaboration has so far yielded tangible benefits as most states have developed robust operational modalities to enhance the efficiency of primary healthcare delivery based on this policy.
