Sununu, who made this known during a meeting with the management of Lady Helen Child Health Foundation (LHCHF) yesterday in Abuja, lamented that although PHCs constituted about 80 per cent of healthcare facilities in the country, Nigerians still clamour for health care services at the limited number of secondary and tertiary health care facilities.


Stressing the need to revitalise and reposition the PHCs with infrastructure and qualified doctors and health care workers, Sununu disclosed that the Federal Government was working on reviving the referral system in health facilities, to ensure each tier of health care system focused on its mandate.
