The Civil Society Legislative Advocacy Centre (CISLAC),  is currently implementing a project entitled “Reinvestment: Increasing Legislative Oversight on Primary Health Care in Nigeria”.

Auwal Ibrahim Musa (Rafsanjani), Executive Director, CISLAC, in a statement on Wednesday, said the project intends to engage relevant Committees at the National Assembly, raising awareness and understanding of the importance of prioritizing funding for basic healthcare.

According to him, “this will positively impact the lives of rural dwellers such as women and children giving cognisance to the essential role of legislative oversight”.

Its ultimate goal is to promote policy implementation of government’s commitment to primary health care in Nigeria.
