An Evaluation Of The Effectiveness And Efficiency Of Nigeria Health Care Facilities During Post Covid 19 Outbreak

Chapter One


1.1 Background Of The Study

Nigeria’s constitution establishes three levels of government: the central, 36 semi-autonomous states, and the Federal Capital Territory, as well as 774 local government areas divided into six geopolitical zones. Each state has an elected executive governor, an executive council, and a legislative house with legislative authority. Each state has an elected executive chairperson and elected legislative council members from electoral wards oversee the local government region (LGA). The 774 LGAs are split into 9555 wards, which make up the total population at the lowest levels of government. State governments have a great deal of power and control over how their services are used and used. Every state has a health minister, and each LGA has a health department. The LGA health department’s workforce is administratively determined by the population of the state and municipal governments. In Nigeria, the three levels of the health system (federal, municipal, and local government) have significant jurisdiction and control over resource distribution and use.

Primary health care is described as “essential care based on practical, scientifically sound, and socially acceptable methods and technology, made universally accessible to individuals and families in the community by their full participation, and at a cost that the community and country can afford to maintain at any stage of their development in the spirit of Alma Ata.”

Healthcare was not one of the first topics on the minds of government leaders since the nation achieved independence in 1960. They became most interested in medicine that could treat rather than prevent diseases. However, 15 years later, the National Basic Health Services Scheme (NBHSS) was created, with primary health care at its heart. It was supposed to provide medical services and services, but it overlooked the application of modern technologies and group collaboration. Unfortunately, because of implementation issues, NBHSS stayed just that: a concept. As a result, Nigeria remained without primary health care until 1985. Olikoye Ransome-Kuti was appointed as the new Minister of Health by the Nigerian government in 1985. And that’s when things began to get better. During his tenure in office, he was able to integrate primary healthcare into all government departments, make childhood immunization free, establish a national health strategy, highlight the importance of preventive medicine, promote vaccination, and launch a nationwide HIV/AIDS program. Although it was rational that community-oriented Primary Healthcare be developed across the tier of government seen to be nearest to the people, the abrupt devolution of primary health care to local government areas may have had negative consequences for quality consistency since that level of government is often considered to have the lowest technological capability. Although well-intentioned, the Federal Government’s presence in the form of model health centers for local government areas ran counter to the recently established concept of devolution of healthcare. Although this action may have been viable under a unitary military government, it was put to the test when democracy was established in 1999.Although the National Primary Healthcare Development Agency (NPHCDA) had some modest successes in its early years, it was not until the advent of democratic government that it began to seriously devise, create, and enforce policies that would protect its position as Nigeria’s primary health care steward.

1.2 Statement Of Problem

it is clear that Nigeria’s healthcare reform is being executed haphazardly, resulting in a shaky base. It jumps to the next level without making Primary Healthcare properly; leaving yawning holes that must be filled before a systematic approach can be taken.COVID-19 is a “socio-economic pandemic” as well as a “health pandemic.” There are fewer funds available to deal through, and there are no funds available to finance the health system. There is no good remuneration for fixing health-care services, ensuring that they have electricity, drinking water, and the necessary diagnostic and treatment equipment. Nigeria does not have a pleasant working atmosphere for health staff. They are being pushed out by the pressures of low pay, lack of working facilities, and unemployment in their homeland.

1.3 Objective Of The Study

The following are the primary objective of this study:

  1. To examine the effectiveness of health care facilities during post covid 19 outbreak
  2. To investigate the efficiency of this health care facilities

1.4 Research Question

  1. Has the health care facilities been effective during post covid 19 outbreak?
  2. What is the efficiency of these health care facilities?

1.5 Significance Of The Study

This study is of significant to government at all tiers and levels. It is also important to scholars, students and researchers

1.6 Scope Of The Study

The purpose of this research is to examine the effectiveness and efficiency of health care facilities during post covid 19 outbreak and the primary health care facilities will be sample respondent for this study

1.7 Limitation Of The Study

Finance, inadequate research materials and time constraint were the major challenges the researcher encountered during the course of this study

1.8 Definition Of Terms

Health Care Facilities:

Health-care facilities are hospitals, primary health-care centers, isolation camps, burn patient units, feeding centers and others. In emergency situations, health-care facilities are often faced with an exceptionally high number of patients, some of whom may require specific medical care (e.g. treatment of chemical poisonings)
