Assisting Benue State to develop a medium-term strategic health plan – Nigeria

Health Partners International provided assistance to the Nigerian state of Benue for the development of a medium-term strategic health plan.

Taking as its starting point the various poverty reduction initiatives, such as the national, state and local government economic empowerment development strategies, the plan focused on state strategies for attaining the two Millennium Development Goals of reducing maternal and child mortality and reducing the spread of HIV/AIDS.

The plan includes:

  • providing a minimum service package, consisting of improved reproductive health services
  • promotion of child health and routine immunization
  • promotion of an integrated approach to HIV/AIDS, sexually transmitted diseases and TB.
