The Adopt-A-Healthcare Facility Program (ADHFP) Launch

Primary Healthcare in Nigeria has been consistently plagued by inefficiencies impacting almost all aspects of the value chain. Some of the issues that the primary healthcare value chain face includes ineffective governance, financing, funding, and service delivery.

The Private Sector Health Alliance of Nigeria (PSHAN) seeks to improve the healthcare situation for everyday Nigerians by providing quality and affordable healthcare using the Adopt-A-Healthcare Facility Program (ADHFP) as a vehicle.

Given this context, the Adopt-A-Healthcare Facility Program (ADHFP) was conceptualized by the Private Sector Health Alliance of Nigeria (PSHAN), with the primary aim of adopting and standardizing at least one Primary Healthcare Centre (PHC) in each of the 774 Local Government Areas (LGAs) in Nigeria. The ADHFP confers several benefits including saving lives, improving health outcomes, job creation, and gender empowerment.

The Adopt-A-Healthcare Facility Program by the Private Sector Health Alliance of Nigeria was officially launched in Lagos on the 10th of November 2022 at the Lagos Oriental Hotel. The theme of this launch event was “Bringing quality Health to the Fingertips of Nigerians”

The highlights of the launch were the showcase of the journey so far in the revitalized pilot PHCs officially launched in Delta and Bauchi states, insightful and impactful panel discussions about the state of primary healthcare in Nigeria and the way forward, as well as the official launch of the ADHFP logo and website.

In addition to the 9.1 billion Naira raised in donations from our supportive partners, we secured another funding commitment to the tune of 2.8 billion Naira following a generous pledge by Mr. Jim Ovia (Chairman Zenith Bank Group), the Herbert Onyewumbu Wigwe Foundation and Ms. Zouera Youssoufou (CEO Aliko Dangote Foundation). We now have the resources to take on:

•44 PHCs in Kano State (courtesy of the Aliko Dangote Foundation)
•25 PHCs in Delta state courtesy of Mr. Jim Ovia
•23 PHCs courtesy of the Aig Imoukouede Foundation (18 of which are to be in Edo State)
•25 PHCs in Rivers State courtesy of the Herbert Onyewumbu Wigwe Foundation
•2 PHCs in Bauchi State courtesy of the Chigari Foundation and Ms. Zouera Youssoufou (1 PHC each)

While this is a step forward, we have successfully raised only 12% of the resources required for the ADHFP. Considering that the goal of the program is to revitalize 774 PHCs in Nigeria, we still have a long way to go. For this reason, we invite organizations and individuals to contribute their resources towards achieving this goal. Every contribution counts and you can pull resources together with other organizations and individuals to adopt a PHC.
