Health is a key sector considered in the Federal Government of Nigeria’s most recent Medium–Term Development Economic Policy Thrust (2017 – 2020) articulated in its Economic Recovery and Growth Plan (ERGP). The Federal Government of Nigeria intends to invest in health and education to fill the skills gap in the economy and meet the international targets set under the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). As part of the ERGP, the FGN developed the support to National Program on Malaria Elimination and Nutrition Improvement Project. The ERGP will improve the accessibility, affordability and quality of healthcare and expand coverage of the National Health Insurance Scheme across the country. Among the first states to benefit from such intervention are Anambra and Ondo States.
