Anambra Hands Over Health Centres To Communities by mike404(m): 9:09am On Dec 24, 2012
Governor Peter Obi of Anambra State has announced the immediate handover of all the local health facilities in the state to the communities where they are located to manage.
Obi made the announcement at Umuleri and repeated same at Atani general hospital while lunching a one day polio campaign. The handover is a fulfilment of earlier promise he handed on Tuesday during the task force on immunisation.
The governor said that the purpose of handover is to ensure that the health centres are run smoothly, as each community owe it a duty to monitor workers posted to each health facility and can decide whether such workers merited their pay. At umuleri and atani local government areas, Obi also inaugurated a task force on immunisation headed by headed by the chairman of the local government traditional rulers council. Chairman of the transition commitee of the local government, head of the department of health, local government immunization officer among others, are members of the task force. Obi urged the task force to aggressively pursue the issue of immunisation with a view to ensuring that it does not come back to the state. Earlier, the newly appointed commissioner for health, Dr. Lawrence Ikeakor, urged women to take up the challenge of making the state to retain it's polio status by getting their children immunised.

Is it handed over to monitor or to run? If to monitor,fine bt if its to run my question is,which one will d govt b doing? Schools handed over to d missionaries and new ones have nt bn built and now this. The big question is,after handingover d schools,why is he still funding it? Cant d missionaries take care of it? If nt whats d sense in handing it over to them when they cant take care of it?

This Obi doesnt know what he is doing. Healthcare is supposed to be Government's gift to the people. Now he hands off on healthcare and wants communities to take charge of their own medicare. Silly, did I say silly ? Not really, I meant to say rubbish

Seriously, let them stakeholders be in charge, that will aid efficiency and effectiveness, and it will reduce embezzlement and corruption.
But wait! Are they to monitor or run? If they are to run, it is nonsense, where will the funds come from? Since those health centres are part of dividends of democracy, so they can't generate fund. And if they are to monitor, the community stakeholders will always connive to enhance corruption (since it is an igbo community). So no pain, no gain.
Governor, please develop and implement better internal control measures and reverse the hand over or betterstill use those control systems to support it (hand over).

My brother, how do we expect communities that are not vested in medical and management sciences to know how to run life-saving centers ? Is there any country in this planet that communities run healthcare centers apart from in Obi's Anambra State ? Privatization works globally in Electricity, Telecomms, sometimes Petroleum sectors, but Health and Educational Sector's work better with Nationalization, only the government has the limitless line of credit to provide the citizens with basic healthcare and education. Obi isnt as intelligent as I thought, no wonder God blessed him with a woman's voice. (apologies to intelligent women)

Re: Anambra Hands Over Health Centres To Communities by abouzaid: 4:10pm On Dec 24, 2012
If a state in america is the first to do this, we would have been praising it but since it's obi, mumu are now talking, obi said the community manage not fund. In otherwords, the government still funds all expense and state level planning while the community leaders monitor and organize self help programs, i don't think it's a bad approach.
Re: Anambra Hands Over Health Centres To Communities by Onlytruth(m): 6:00pm On Dec 24, 2012
I see a pattern here, and I smell a rat.
What is Anambra state government doing with all the monies that come into state coffers if commununities, churches et al are the bodies running schools and healthcare services? It is an indirect way of offloading state responsibilities. Isn't this an indirect way of privatizing these public services?
I am a little concerned about Peter Obi's mad rush to unbridled capitalism. I am a capitalist with a sense of "together we rise and fall"; therefore a believer in collective responsibility secured by continued management/funding of critical infrastructure by STATE government.

O buru na ego Anambra state agwugo, biko Peter Obi gwa anyi ka anyi juo ajuju maka ya.

Meanwhile, fingers crossed. lipsrsealed
Re: Anambra Hands Over Health Centres To Communities by Onlytruth(m): 6:39pm On Dec 24, 2012
The more I think about this, the more it doesn't add up.
Okay, think of it this way. Each community will develop and manage its own health centers according to available human and material resources in the community.
There is NO WAY to get a uniform standard in these health care centres. Richer towns will have higher quality healthcare. The problem is that in the absence of state funding, it would be difficult to enforce common standards; unless of course, the whole thing is treated as purely private investment, which I suspect they will be at the end.

u keep missing it. Just d way missionaries run the schools is the way communities wil monitor and supervise health care centres. They are nt to pay or hire staffs bt can recommend to govt to either sack or reward as the case may be. Ask any resident of anambra abt the level standard of education has risen since d churches started runin them. Tanx

Re: Anambra Hands Over Health Centres To Communities by KenGali: 3:56am On Dec 25, 2012
Guys, this is a very good idea. A health care centre is not a sophisticated medical outfit. It is the first step in the line of medical service. This idea has worked very well in the area of Education in the United states.

It allows the communities to control the services
Procure the actual service they need
Employ the calibre of staff they need
Manage resources more transparently, since people can more easily be checkmated at the local level.
It ensures that the medical facility can respond fast to the needs of the community.

However, there is a reason why it may not work well as constituted in Anambra state.
The communities need some autonomy and an accountable authority who sets up community based committees to manage such establishments.
Anambra state will have to recognise the communities as a fourth tier of government, just like Rochas has done in Imo state, but with better governance structure. I suggest a two years term Mayor, a year term Security Chief with the town Progressive Union as the Parliamentary body, The Igwe's can still remain overall heads with no political participation. This will allow community based management to be extended to all basic establishments in health, education, housing, environment, governance and taxing. Something that Anambra communities are already somewhat good at. if we do this, spate of positive development in the state will be astounding. And our spirit of healthy competition will drive it to great heights. Our retiring professionals will also have better reasons to retire to the villages where they can still make great positive contributions.
