Edo to build 300 PHCs in 30 months
Governor Godwin Obaseki of Edo state, Friday, said his administration was determined to build about 300 designated Primary Health Care centres (PHCs) across the state in 30 months.
Obaseki said this in Benin during the inauguration of the Lift Above Poverty Organisation (LAPO) ultra-medical care facility, called the Benin Medical Care (BMC).
He said the new PHCs, which would be under the Edo Health Improvement Programme would be done in collaboration with health care providers.
