NIGERIA at 61 — Time to Rebuild the Nigerian Healthcare System; Health Promotion Ambassador- Adaku Efuribe, passionately talks about the need to rebuild the failing healthcare system in Nigeria.

Sustainable development could be defined as development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.

An article published in the journal of Pharmacy and BioAllied sciences (J Pharm BioAllied Sci. 2011 Oct-Dec; 3(4): 470–478.), concluded that ‘The Nigerian health care system is poorly developed. No adequate and functional surveillance systems are developed. To achieve success in health care in this modern era, a system well-grounded in routine surveillance and medical intelligence as the backbone of the health sector is necessary, besides adequate management couple with strong leadership principles’ (Welcome, M.O 2011).

‘We need to hold our leaders accountable and demand for a practical strategy that would afford us a functional healthcare system though the provision of Universal Health coverage ‘peri/ post’ COVID-19 pandemic’ (Adaku Efuribe)
