States, FCT to Get N100million each for COVID-19 Response Activities

All the 36 states and the Federal Capital Territory will receive N100million each through the Regional Diseases Surveillance Enhancement (REDISSE) Project, to boost their response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Minister of Health, Dr Osagie Ehanire, made this known in Abuja during the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 briefing.

According to the Minister, once the Basic Health Care Provisional Fund (BHCPF) is activated, states will also get access to it to beef up their health response apparatus.

He said: “I am pleased to mention that all states, including the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) are receiving support from the COVID-19 response through the Regional Diseases Surveillance Enhancement (REDISSE) Project.

‘With this support, they will receive N100 million to enhance high impact priority response activities. The soon to be reactivated BHCPF will join the funding pool,” the minister stated.
