For many years, the country has experienced a continuing decline in the healthcare sector and currently underperforms when compared with equivalent sectors of other developing countries. Budgetary allocation and per capita government expenditure on healthcare has also remained low when compared with per capita government expenditure in more developed countries. In the 2008 appropriation at the federal level, the healthcare sector had N89.45 billion to expend, out of which N29.12 billion was meant to handle approximately 700 capital projects. However, by the end of the year, N11.34 billion of the total allocation of N89.45 billion was returned as unspent funds.
