80% Under-Five Deaths Occur In Primary Health Centres — Osinbajo

The Vice President, Prof Yemi Osinbajo says 80 per cent of the 2,500 Nigerian under-five children who die every day occur in primary health care centres.

Vice President Osinbajo, who was represented by the Minister of Women Affairs, Pauline Tallen, at the launch of the Community-Based Health Research Innovative Training and Services Programme, CRISP, in Abuja also says Nigeria accounts for only two per cent of the world’s population but accounts for 14 per cent of the world’s maternal death burden.

Hre added that no country can boast of effective healthcare delivery without adequate and well-distributed human resources for health.

He put the cause of the preventable losses to a lack of services that skilled birth attendants could provide.

He said the CRISP initiative will make skilled health workers from teaching hospitals and federal medical centres available to offer services in the PHCs across the country.
