#HealthIsWealth: Here’s How Lagos Is Ensuring Quality Health Care

INSIDEMAINLAND – The Health Facilities Monitoring and Accreditation Agency has announced that it has authorized eight private organizations to conduct the inspection of health facilities in Lagos State.

The Chairman of the Governing Board, Dr. Yemisi Solanke-Koya, revealed this in a statement on Wednesday, during a news conference held at the agency’s office in Alausa, Ikeja.

Solanke-Koya added that the monitoring will begin right away with a six-month pilot phase and at the end of June 2023, this pilot phase will be evaluated for improved delivery.

She said, “The objective of the outsourcing is to increase the monitoring coverage of health facilities to ensure improved quality of healthcare delivery to the residents of the state.

“The private organizations were selected following a due procurement process and will monitor both the public and private health facilities in the Local Governments Areas assigned to each of them. However, HEFAMAA officers will continue to work with these private organizations.”

The Agency’s Executive Secretary, Dr. Abiola Idowu, noted that the inspection will involve evaluating health institutions and looking into concerns from the general public.

“Let me assure you that our officers will continue to carry out inspection of new facilities for registration purposes, assessment of facilities for empanelment into the Health Insurance Scheme, investigation of petitions and complaints from the public as well as enforcement of the law,” she said.
