The funds allocated on hospital facilities should be used for what they are meant for and not for irrelevant projects or selfish interest. Penalty should be stipulated on any body or organization that fraud or embezzle fund meant for Health services.

The medical personnel’s should be supported and encouraged in their health care duties. Their salaries should be attractive and interesting so as to motivate them in giving out the best in them to the people who needs their services.

Government health planners should be developed in the managerial skills in order to meet with the technicalities of health planning. Voluntary agency and private hospital can be used to extend health care to target populations. The medical personnel’s should be paid by the approval government scale. They should not be underpaid to avoid them indulging in strict action, which demoralizes the future Doctors and Nurses thereby increases, the percentage of death rate in the society.

Our health workers should be discouraged of disposing their talents abroad. In a nutshell, Health system should be financed first before any other because Health they say is wealth.
