The Health Policy Commission is a recent creation of the NESG in recognition of the importance of health in driving and sustaining other development sectors. The relevance has been made more obvious with the impact of Covid19 which has led to disastrous health outcomes, overcrowding of health facilities and a downturn in the country’s economy with the IMF predicting a -4.9% global growth as a result of the pandemic. The Heath Policy Commission has a mandate to stimulate the country’s response towards building responsive and resilient health systems to enable the achievement of Universal Health Coverage in Nigeria.
The overarching objective of the Policy Commission is to facilitate the adoption of the various NES recommendations as it relates to fostering equality in access to health, ensuring quality health services as well as financial risk protection.
