The Saving One Million Lives Program for Result (SOML PforR) is a Federal Government intervention to strengthen healthcare services across the country. The program is being funded through a credit from the World Bank. In 2016, each of the 36 states and the FCT was given $1.5 million as a grant for the implementation of the program and Follow the Money team started tracking the implementation in different states.

Subsequently, through data mining by our team, it was found on a tender advertisement that the Ministry of Health in Akwa Ibom State has called for bids, for the construction of perimeter fence, completion of two bedroom twin staff quarters and provision of water scheme at Idung Iniang PHC. This intervention project is to improve maternal and child health through strengthening health systems in the state under the SOML PforR.

We have initiated the #ConstructIdungIniang campaign to track the implementation of the PHC project at Idung Iniang. Through this campaign, we call on all concerned stakeholders especially the Akwa Ibom State Ministry of Health to uphold public interest through being accountable and transparent in the usage of the funds that have been released for this project.

We implore the public to get on board with us in following this money to ensure that the project is duly implemented through joining us on http://ifollowthemoney.org
