Goal 3: Good Health and Well-Being
Healthcare delivery in Nigeria is severely underfunded. In 2001, Nigeria was signatory to the Abuja agreement, where African nations made a commitment to allocate 15% of their national budgets to healthcare delivery. However, 21 years after, the nation is still struggling to live up to this ideal.
According to a 2017 WHO report, 77% of healthcare spend in Nigeria is out of pocket. In the 2021 budget, the allocation to healthcare was 7% of the National Budget. In the 2022 budget, only 4.3% is allocated to healthcare.
