PART 1: INTRODUCTION
This Policy Brief continues the tradition established in CSJ over the years to engage the preparation and approval of the health and MNCH proposals. We started the 2018 process through our pre-budget memorandum on the Health Sector Medium Term Sector Strategies. The objective is to provide advocacy materials that will be used to engage the legislature and MDAs in the approval of the federal health budget proposals. We reviewed the line item provisions focused on MNCH to determine their propriety and adequacy and whether Nigeria is meeting her obligations under the Abuja Declaration. The implementation of the National Health Act, especially the Basic Health Care Provision Fund which is 1% of the Consolidated Revenue Fund of the Federal Government came up for review.
