Kabo Hospital, Kano State

Kabo town is an agrarian community and local government headquarters of Kabo LGA.  The community has a population of 12, 276 inhabitants. The town lies on Karaye valleys, 54.4 Kilometers away from Kano Metropolis. Kabo Cottage hospital was commissioned on Thursday 15th April 1999.  Currently the health facility has adequate staff, functioning borehole, electricity and standby generator. In addition, the facility is equipped with surgical theater where minor and major surgeries are done. The Impact of better health on development, poverty reduction and the achievement of the health goals is indeed massive especially for the rising population of Nigerians which presently stands at about 200million including women and children. To make certain that health is priortized within the overall economic and development plans, Follow The Money research team uncovered the tender advertisement by Kabo Local Government Council to construct 20 Bedward at Kabo Hospital, Kano State.

To provide oversight and foster information sharing between the implementing agency and the beneficiary community on the implementation of this project, FTM team is initiating #RehabilitateKabo campaign. We call on all stakeholders especially the Kabo Local Government Council to provide necessary information that will aid the successful monitoring and implementation of this project.
