Project Description
<div style="left: 68.6px; top: 585.083px; font-size: 18.4px; font-family: sans-serif; transform: scaleX(0.924098);">The project development objective (PDO) is to strengthen health system management for the operationalization of the Basic Health Care Provision Fund in selected states. The Project will finance the early implementation of the BHCPF in 3 states of the Federation. Based on the lessons learned it is envisaged that the Federal Government will provide most of the financing for the nationwide scale- up of the BHCPF. The project will finance two components: Component 1: payments for service delivery through the FFS mechanism (NHIS gateway) and DFF mechanism (NPHCDA Gateway); and Component 2: health systems management strengthening to support BHCPF implementation. The project is like setting up a plumbing system and putting in water to see if the pipes are patent, don&rsquo;t leak, and the water arrives at the end user.</div>
