The #FollowTheMoney (FTM) Team examined Gombe State  Ministry of Health’s Appropriation and found out that NGN 9.8 million ($31,155) was budgeted for the renovation  of the Primary Healthcare Centre (PHC) at Jessu, Yamaldu/Deba Local Government Area with the implementation agency being the Gombe State Primary Health Care Development Agency.

Our preliminary visit to the community showed that the community has a population of about 2000 who use the primary centre. The road leading to the PHC is totally bad, there are no beds, medical equipment, vaccines and equipped wards.

In addition, the health centre is in total shamble as the building is dilapidated.

We have initiated the #RenovateJessu campaign to track the implementation of the N9.8 Million. Through this campaign, we call on all concerned public and private agencies, especially the SPHCDA to uphold the public interest through the accountable and transparent management of the funds that have been released to construct the PHC. We invite the public to get involved in the Campaign today. Help us follow the money to ensure that the PHC is built for the local community members in order to provide adequate health care services to them.
