Health seminar set to boost Adamawa State locals

22 June 2015, 17:19

Adamawa - The American University of Nigeria (AUN) is hosting a healthcare evaluation research seminar aimed at empowering Adamawa State locals through better healthcare.

The seminar, which began on Monday and ends on Tuesday in Yola, is a joint project of the Adamawa State Primary Health Care Development Agency (ASPHCDA), and PACT Nigeria, a non-governmental organization.

The exercise seeks to evaluate PACT’s just-concluded research on healthcare delivery in Adamawa.

The research goal is to provide empirical evidence to identify bottlenecks to health services supply, demand, and use in the state, organisers said.

Speakers were on Monday scheduled to discuss the “Assessment of Health Services Provision in Adamawa State,” as well as “The Political Economy Analysis of Health Systems Funding in Adamawa State” on Tuesday.

Participants include leadership from 11 state Ministries of Health, as well as primary healthcare development agencies and other concerned groups.

Professors at AUN and PhD candidates will also attend, including Dr Jennifer Vincent-Tyndall of AUN’s Department of Natural and Environmental Sciences, who will moderate the seminar.

Participants are expected to make recommendations to the Government of Adamawa and other stakeholders regarding appropriate steps to improve healthcare services, especially for women and children.

Founded by the former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, in 2005, AUN follows an American style general education programme.
