In the six decades since independence, the national health care network has improved on a piecemeal basis, driven primarily by a handful of international organisations and, more recently, government entities at the federal, state and local levels. The sector is guided by the National Strategic Health Development Plan (2010-15), which runs alongside the wider aims outlined in the Vision 20:2020 strategy. With a new federal health bill in the works and steadily increasing private sector participation in many areas, Nigeria’s health care sector is potentially on the brink of a period of sustained expansion.
