The Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) arm of MTN Nigerias mobile telecommunication giant, MTN Foundation, has rolled out plans to adopt 40 out of Nigerias 25,380 Primary Healthcare Centres (PHCs) for revitalisation support.
The intervention is coming on the heels of the declaration by the Nigerian government that only 463 out of the 25,380 PHCs, amounting to 1.8 per cent, possess the required number of Skilled Birth Attendants (SBAs).
The planned intervention, according to the Foundation, is aimed at improving the health outcomes of underserved Nigerian communities that would be successfully chosen through what it described as a meritbased process.
The Foundation, in a statement which was made available to PREMIUM TIMES, noted that revamping the PHCs is the focus of the 5th edition of its initiative tagged What Can We Do Together (WCWDT).
