According to Dr. Nusirat Elelu, executive secretary of the Kwara Health Care Development Agency, the state has acquired financing from the World Bank to support infrastructure upgrades in at least one primary healthcare facility in each of the 193 wards of the state.

In a statement, Elelu explained that the N887.8 million funding was given as part of the government’s counterpart payment for the Immunization Plus and Malaria Progress by Accelerating Coverage and Transforming Services initiative.

Elelu commended the governor of Kwara State, AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq, for consistently paying counterpart payments for various healthcare services, and he would formally inaugurate the initiative on Monday, when checks would be delivered to the state’s benefited PHCs.

“This assistance is arriving through the World Bank assisted- IMPACT project through a Decentralised Facility Financing, with an initial disbursement of the investment fund to one Primary Health Care Centre in each of the 193 geopolitical wards in Kwara State.

“Oversight will also be jointly provided by the National Primary HealthCare Development Agency, State Primary HealthCare Development Agency, LGA Health Authority, and the World Bank.”
