The Lagos State Commissioner for Health, Prof Akin Abayomi, said at least 60 per cent of the primary healthcare centres in the state are not in very desirable state.
Abayomi revealed this on Saturday on his Instagram handle @profakinabayomi.
The commissioner, however, said the state government had invested time to conduct a needs assessment on PHC infrastructure to provide evidence-based information for improvement.
He said, “A functional Primary Health Centre is the foundation of a vibrant healthcare system, and as part of the blueprint for the transformation of the medical infrastructure strategy in Lagos State, the @lagostategovt has invested time to conduct a needs assessment on PHC infrastructure to provide evidence-based information for improvement.
“Lagos State has over 325 PHCs, with at least 60 per cent not in a very desirable state. @lagosstategovt is currently putting plans in place to refurbish these facilities to cater for the health needs of Lagos residents.
