Broadening the focus of health programmes and unifying their delivery is making improvements to healthcare.

  1. The fragmented nature of healthcare delivery in Northern Nigeria often results in intermittent programmes that are narrow in focus and limited in duration.
  2. State-wide health planning has led to improved leveraging of extra resources and means resources can be used more effectively.
