Nigerians demand accountability in routine immunization

NIGERIANS have demanded  transparency and accountability from duty bearers at the process chain of Routine Immunization (RI) in Nigeria.

Participants at the Round Table Discussion on Accountability Framework for Routine Immunization (RI) in Nigeria, while making the demand, in Abuja, also called for the establishment of Ward Development Committee (WDC) in line with the policy on Primary Health Care in the country.

They expressed dissatisfaction over the abandoning of guideline and policy on primary health care, adding that inefficiency of Routine Immunization in Nigeria was as result of lack of structural processes that will ensure accountability.

The Director General of the Primary Health Care Development Agency, PHCDA, Dr Ado Mohammed, corroborated views of the discussants that performance in the RI is not encouraging, attributing it to lack of accountability in the system.
