According to the minister, Global Financing Facility through the World Bank and Bill and Melinda Foundation provided initial resources to implement Section 11 of National Health Act 2014.

The minister said the terms of reference for the committee, includes promoting true collaboration in the development and implementation of basic healthcare provision fund and being fully transparent in its decision making.

Others are the review updates on funds flow, performance management and verification of result provided by the secretariat; monitor progress against approved plans and guidelines and appointment of external auditors.

Ehanire appreciated the donor partners for their contributions to the Nigeria health sector.

He added that despite the challenges in the health sector, Nigeria is working toward provision of quality healthcare to all.

Responding on behalf of the donor partners, Mr Paulim Basinga, representative of Global Financing Facility, said that two million dollars have been committed for the basic healthcare provision fund.
Basinga assured the minister of more support from the donor agencies.

The Commissioner for Health, Niger, Dr Mustapha Jibril, while speaking on behalf of benefitting states, said “there is no doubt that basic healthcare provision fund would improve the health indices of the selected states”.
