Nigeria’s Progress on the Health MDGs
20 SEPTEMBER 2010 | NEW YORK
Organizer: Permanent Mission of Nigeria
Event dates: 20 September 2010 1:15 PM - 2:30 PM
Venue: Conference Room 2 NLB
The event aims to share best practices and the opportunities to move forward on the MDGs. It will provide inspiration to representatives of other developing countries – particularly those operating Federal or decentralized systems – for new funding and policy mechanisms. It is expected to generate discussion and debate on issues that will underpin the main negotiations in the General Assembly on the MDGs, for example on how funds can more effectively be channelled to health programs at the local level, build government’s capacity for planning and increasing healthcare and education personnel and address major health challenges with a basket of interventions.
