Adopt a PHC program – ARORO PHC

Nigeria’s health care system is weak, ranking a dismal 187 out of 191 WHO member countries.

One of the main reasons for the weak health system is the dysfunctional state of the Primary Health Care Services –  the foundation and cornerstone of any nation’s health system.

In line with our mission and vision, we at CeSAHA embarked on a community-based health intervention project tagged “Adopt A PHC program” with the slogan “Quality Health, Quality life”. We recently ‘adopted’ ARORO Primary Health Centre (PHC) in Akinyele LGA, Ibadan, Oyo State with the goal of supporting the Oyo State government in its current efforts to substantially improve the quality of life of the people of Oyo through provision of high quality healthcare services even amidst this raging COVID-19 pandemic. The Primary Healthcare system is the foundation of any nation’s health system and our goal is to work with the key stakeholders to strengthen the capability and capacity of the Ikate PHC to provide the catchment population with essential and affordable community health services in line with the PHC act. 

On December 11, 2020, CeSAHA organized a dissemination workshop with the Dr Olatunji, Executive Director of Primary Healthcare Board, Oyo state, Mrs Adeniran, the Matron for Akinyele LGA and the Facility workers, to share findings of the needs assessment carried out. Discussions around bridging the gaps identified in the Facility took place too.
