Despite billion spent, Edo community Hospital in a terrible condition

A community Primary Health Care in Esan West Local Government Area of Edo State state is in terrible condition despite billions of Naira expended by the state government on heath sector.

For in stance, the Edo state government in the year 2020 approved the sum of N1 billion for Primary Health Care Reform and N1 billion for Contribution to the State Health Insurance Scheme.

This is even as the state government in the last decades allocated billions to primary healthcare. And, despite the huge amount expended on health, there are many communities in the state that have terrible Primary Healthcare.

Tracka, a public accountability organisation that exposed terrible nature of the hospital, says it is the only health facility in the community.

The organization has since appealed to Mr. Godwin Obaseki, the State Governor to help fix the hospital and employ personnel.
