In the last quarter of 2016, the Follow The Money Team kick-started the monitoring and tracking the World Bank $1.5 Million grant to the 36 States and FCT each for the improvement of Primary Health Centres (PHCs). Our pilot states were in Enugu, Kano, Akwa-Ibom, Kogi, Osun and Yobe.

Furtherance to that, we have initiated the #RevatilizeApaOlaIlota campaign to track Kwara State’s $1.5 Million for the improvement of Apa Ola/Ilota health centre in Kwara South Local Government Area of Kwara State. This is well timed as the community which has about 3000 population size does not have a functional PHC. The PHC is basically empty with no equipment; no electricity, water supply, and emergency transport. In addition, the PHC has weak antenatal care infrastructure, no skilled birth attendants, no fridge to store drugs; no quarters for hospital staffers; a limited number of beds & chairs; and the toilet is a pit latrine.

We invite the public to get involved in the campaign today. As we understand that more lives will be saved if all the investments being allocated for were put in place and judiciously used as poor health facilities in Nigeria is key factor contributing to high maternal and child mortality.  Help us in this campaign so the rural community members of Apa Ola/Ilota would have access to better health care services for better health outcome.
