Hi there. Can I tell you what I dream of doing?
I want to achieve universal health coverage in Nigeria.
It's all part of making a better world.
Through providing mandatory universal health coverage (UHC), every Nigerian will have access to and receive quality primary healthcare service - immunization, nutrition, malaria, etc - regardless of socioeconomic status. UHC has the potential to drastically reduce out-of-pocket payments and thus contribute to poverty reduction in Nigeria.
This is really going to help people.
The impact of my vision will be felt by ALL Nigerians. However, people who are much more economically disadvantaged or of low socioeconomic status will benefit the most.
It's not just about having an idea though - here are the things I know I can achieve:
Improved health of Nigerians.
Reduction in out-of-pocket expenditure for health.
Reduction of extreme poverty levels in Nigeria.
I'm going to make this happen, and this is how I know it'll make a difference.
Over a specified period of time to allow for tangible results, I will analyse data from health records of Nigerians before and after health insurance coverage and compare them to determine improvement in health.
I will also use pre- and post-implementation surveys (questionnaires, etc) of households to determine out-of-pocket expenses for health and how these have impacted their livelihood/poverty levels.
Thanks for listening to me. Will you help me build a better world?
