Gov. Masari inaugurates Health Promotion Campaigns in Katsina


Katsina State Governor Aminu Bello Masari on Thursday inaugurated Health Promotion Outreach Campaign in Kurfi Local Government, decrying the alarming rate of child mortality rate in the state. The nation reports

He noted that about 900,000 children and mothers die annually in the country.

The Health Promotion Outreach Programme is being sponsored by the state’s “Save One Million Lives Programme, supported by donor agencies and the state Ministry of health

Masari, who described the National Child Mortality rate as unacceptable, further revealed that the aggregate data showed that the nation only made modest progress in the health sector in the past two decades despite the huge investment by the three levels of government.

He said: “We have observed that solution focused on improved inputs has not worked in the past but the availability of many of the health inputs such as health facilities and trained health workers suggested that governance broadly defined impending or binding constraints.

“This Save One Million Lives Programme provides us with an opportunity to broadly address governance and the management issues towards ensuring  greater focus on the result; increased accountability; improved measurement and the encouragement of innovation.”



  1. To me taking action from first tear of health sectors i.e primary level will put stop to all this ailments that are claiming children lives day and night.. improving SPHCDA by adding health personal and equipment will be tackle this problem from the grassroot

  2. No adequate functioning Health Facilities, no enough trained health personnel at PHC level, among them many were retired with no replacement offer and no new recruitment at PHC level for many years, and such PHC programs are covering only few % of population, due to inadequate materials and Health personnel, all these are most happened in KT St, were day and night Morbidity and Mortality rates are increases, surprisingly see they are claiming that effort made to reduce the effects and it will never without taking proper measures to rehabilitate PHC Level.
