CALL FOR APPLICATION: PACFaH 2017 Health Budget Monitor Media Challenge

PACFaH ChallengeE

Are you passionate about Nigeria Health Sector? Are you an adept follower of Nigerian media? We the Partnership for Advocacy in Child and Family Health (PACFaH) Project Nigeria would like to invite you to become a champion and an advocate for child and family health in Nigeria. We draw your attention to join our cause to encourage government to increase the funds for 2017 Health budget.

We call on you to take the lead in writing an article or carry out a media campaign or do a resourceful video reporting on Health Budgeting in Nigeria with a focus on the 2017 Health Budget.

We understand how crucial a standard health system is to Nigeria’s economy, and without a doubt, if Nigeria’s health sector is epileptic, other sectors will be rendered unproductive eventually. This we know cannot be possible without at least a 15% of the overall National budget being allocated to HEALTH. Right now, with the recently submitted 2017 Budget proposal, the Health Budget stands at a very low 4.17%. It is quite disheartening that other African countries with very low influx of revenue like Ethiopia and South Africa budget as much as 12% to 16%; Nigeria can and should have a much higher allocation than these countries.

We know this is possible, with our advocacy and your voice in the media, we can push the health budget higher! Now is the time to act! Take the challenge, go ahead, write an in-depth report/editorial, do a ground breaking media video coverage or voxpop; and if you’re a social media influencer, why not champion a social media campaign.
