New Self-Care Award Supports Universal Overall health Coverage in Nigeria


Mar 17, 2023

We are pleased to announce our new project, the Self-Care Accelerator Project (S-CAP), to accelerate achievement of universal overall health coverage by advertising the use and scale-up of self-care interventions in Nigeria.

In Nigeria, there is restricted access to overall health solutions via the standard overall health program due to various barriers. These barriers have produced an rising demand for revolutionary techniques that will advance principal healthcare and contribute to universal overall health coverage. Self-care interventions assistance overall health systems by giving promising approaches to boost coverage and access, lessen overall health disparities, boost high quality of solutions, boost overall health, human rights, and social outcomes, and lessen expense and offer much more effective use of healthcare sources.

Nigeria is the initially nation in Africa to create the National Self Care Guideline for Sexual, Reproductive and Maternal Overall health, drawing on the WHO suggestions on Self-care interventions for overall health and effectively-getting. S-CAP will assistance the FMOH to accelerate this national self-care agenda in Nigeria, to place in spot systems for complete scale up of self-care. In undertaking so, it will also serve as an exemplar with lessons to inform international programming in self-care

Self-care holds the guarantee of shifting the paradigm from overly dependence on overall health systems, lowering the bludgeoning healthcare expense and burden on providers, by empowering men and women to carry out basic overall health options.” Adewole Adefalu, JSI Technical Advisor.
