The Project Director of the Universal Health Coverage (UHC) Policy Forum at the Chatham House and an internationally recognized expert on Progressive Health Financing, Robert Yates, has said that Ondo State is leading a revolution in healthcare delivery system in Nigeria.

Yates made the declaration at the opening ceremony of the Ondo State Council on Health 2016 (#OndoSCH2016) ongoing at the International Conference and Event Centre (The Dome) Akure.

According to him: “With the higher levels of political commitment, public spending and better governance. The South Western state is outperforming other states in Nigeria. With a 7-8% budget share it is providing universal free healthcare for pregnant women and children under 5 and have reached MDGs 4 and 5”.

He further raised a disturbing question if Federal Government can be humble to learn from Ondo. His question “Could Ondo’s success be a model for Nigeria?”.
