Nigeria’s Basic Health Care Provision Fund (BHCPF) seeks to remove financial barriers to accessing primary healthcare. If implemented well, the BHCPF has the potential to unlock access to high-quality basic healthcare services across the country, particularly for the most vulnerable populations. Using the Lives Saved Tool, HP+ estimates that—compared to a scenario in which the coverage of basic healthcare services remains constant—accelerating the implementation of the BHCPF could lead to dramatic reductions in neonatal, under-five, and maternal mortality and save over one million mothers, babies, and children by 2022.
