Canada to give Nigeria 24.9 million Cdn dlrs for health projects


Canada and Nigeria agreed to terms under which the Canadian International Development Agency is to provide 24.9 million Canadian dollars (20.4 million US) for health projects in the west African country.

ABUJA, Nigeria (AFP) - Canada and Nigeria agreed to terms under which the Canadian International Development Agency is to provide 24.9 million Canadian dollars (20.4 million US) for health projects in the west African country.

Canadian ambassador to Nigeria David Angell and chief Nigerian economic adviser Ode Ojowu signed two memorandums of understanding for their respective countries.

Ojowu said that under the agreements, the Canadian government would provide assistance for certain priority projects as well as for the school of health technology and primary health care development agency.

"The project is in line with Nigeria's health sector reforms expressed in the NEEDS (National Economic Empowerment Development Strategy) and aggressive strategic areas such as improving health resources and their management, access to quality health services and community awareness," Angell said.

NEEDS, introduced by the Nigerian government last year, is a home-grown poverty reduction strategy.

It is a medium-term strategy derived from the country's long-term goals of poverty reduction, wealth creation and job creation.
