President Bola Tinubu has approved the formation of the National Health Fellows Programme, which will place young Nigerians in all 774 local government areas across the country.

According to presidential spokesman Ajuri Ngelale, the establishment reflects President Bola Tinubu’s determination to comprehensively upgrade existing primary healthcare centres and construct over 8,800 new primary healthcare centres across all local government areas in the country for accessible and qualitative healthcare delivery, as well as the implementation of new social accountability mechanisms.

Ngelale stated that the well-trained fellows will function as fiduciary agents to monitor and track Primary Healthcare Centre development and performance, which will be meticulously measured against all funding inflows to the centers nationwide.

He further explained that the fellowship programme will be domiciled in the Sector Wide Approach (SWAp) coordination office under the Federal Ministry of Health and Social Welfare.
