February 2, 2021.

On February 2nd 2021, the Health Federation of Nigeria (HFN), in partnership with the National Primary Health Care Development Agency (NPHCDA) with technical assistance from Anadach Group, EY Nigeria and Salient Advisory, organized an online roundtable discussion on the COVID-19 vaccine roll-out in Nigeria.

In attendance were the Honorable Minister of Health of Nigeria, the Governors of Delta and Ekiti states, as well as senior executives of key public agencies and other stakeholders including policy makers, Investors and regulators. The discussions centered on supply chain for distribution of COVID-19 vaccines and financing arrangements for the vaccine program. Dr. Egbe Osifo-Dawodu, founding partner of Anadach Group, moderated the panel on financing.

 

The main highlight of the session was the consensus that private sector support is needed to finance all aspects of the value chain. Innovative financing methods and increased advocacy efforts for earmarked financing for the health sector were suggested as means of supporting public funding. The need for strategic procurement of vaccines and local manufacture to guarantee sustainable supply were also raised.

Launch of Anadach Governance Academy Program

governance-academy-program.jpeg

The role of insightful health sector governing bodies is essential to achieve the health, employment, and financial goals of the organization or community. The members of the governing bodies make decisions that define policies, rules and regulations. They help support both clinical and financial oversight and accountability for the enterprise’s leadership as they expand access to health care and health gain.

 

These sessions provided practical insights for modern board work across Africa, and other continents and are part of our launch of the Anadach Governance Academy designed to support smarter governance in African healthcare orgnaizations. The webinars also addressed new insights on approaches to minimizing common obstacles to good governance in low and middle-income countries (LMICs). These include understanding of the roles and responsibilities of board members; the difficulty to recruit talented and ethical people for board membership; a lack of support for successful decision-making, as well as inadequate information and orientation for successful engagement.

The first webinar took place on Thursday November 19th 2020 at 14.00 UTC ( 2.00 pm Accra, 3.00pm Lagos, 4.00 pm Johannesburg, 5.00 pm Nairobi) and focused on improving board governance for private health sector organizations, addressing private sector board challenges, sharing best practices and board performance goals. 

The second webinar took place on Tuesday December 8th 2020 at 14.00 UTC ( 2.00 pm Accra, 3.00 pm Lagos, 4.00 pm Johannesburg, 5.00 pm Nairobi) and will focus on improving board governance for public sector organizations, and Non-Governmental Organizations addressing board challenges, sharing best practices and board performance goals.
