The Special Adviser to President Bola Tinubu on Health, Salma Anas, said plans were underway to improve governance, accountability mechanisms, transparency in funding allocation and expenditure in the health sector.

Salma stated this in Abuja during the 30th anniversary celebration of Options, a global health organisation with the mission of unlocking health prosperity and Universal Health Coverage in Nigeria.

She said the government also planned to make the country self-reliant in producing essential medical supplies and vaccines, which necessitated private sector engagement.

She stressed the significance of integrated and comprehensive healthcare services, emphasising the need for a seamless transition from primary, secondary to tertiary care levels.
