The Nigeria Solidarity Support Fund NSSF said its partnership with the National Primary Health Care Development Agency NPHCDA has resulted in the vaccination of 1,651,278 Nigerians across six states of the country as at last December.
The states are Adamawa, Edo, Imo, Katsina, Nasarawa, and Ogun.
The Fund is governed by a statutory board of experienced and reputable members with Tunde Folawiyo as Board Chairman.
The group had reached an agreement in September 2021 to collaborate with the Agency to support the vaccination of one million Nigerians across six states of the federation.
The NSSF said the success made in the vaccination drive would not have been possible without the support of donor partners, the NSSF Team and most importantly, the health workers in the field who are implementing the vaccination campaign.
The NSSF is a private-sector led institution born out of a partnership between the Global Citizen and the Nigeria Sovereign Investment Authority to complement efforts in combating the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic.
