The Economy & You – Adeyemi Adewole

59,000 Nigerian women die every year from pregnancy and childbirth according to the Center for Reproductive rights, and 1 in every 8 children dies before the age of 5. In Nigerian hospitals, kidney related diseases account for about 20% of deaths and malaria kills about 180,000 annually according to WHO data. These are disturbing statistics as a sizeable percentage of the Nigerian populace do not have access to good health care services. On the bright side, the current government at the center seems to have made healthcare delivery a priority. For one, they have promised to build or equip 10,000 primary health centers across the country with a budgetary allocation of 3.5% of the 6.07 trillion Naira budget for 2016. On the other hand the private health sector has also recorded a boost in their capacity to offer solutions with new entrepreneurs bringing in innovations with multinational specialist care centers opening up in different Nigerian cities.
