Health minister Ali Pate has commended the U.S. and other partners for investing $900 million in Nigeria’s malaria, HIV/AIDS and tuberculosis programmes.
According to Mr Pate, the U.S. government support about $900 million over the years is significant.
Mr Pate said overall governance was important and that the ministry would support the vision of President Bola Tinubu to ensure the health sector is better covered, “which means that to govern health better, we have to look at the intergovernmental aspects as well as what we do as a federal government.”
Mr Pate added, “We have to do it with our development partners like yourself and others who are going to come after to serve Nigerians, to improve their health and wellbeing and have good data to tell the story of where we are going. To hold ourselves accountable and also hold you accountable, even as the source countries also called institutions accountable. That’s the pillar of governance.”
Mr Pate said the visit symbolised the significance that the delegation places on the health and well-being of Nigerians and on Nigeria’s positioning in the global effort to improve people’s health.
