Quality of Healthcare Amidst COVID-19 Pandemic in IDP Camp
The health sector is “…plagued with problems” (NHIS 2010) with low efficiency and effectiveness, inadequate budgetary allocations, ineffective use of resources in running the health system, and unbalanced and inequitable distribution of resources. The National Strategic Health Development Plan is seen mainly as inadequate, and implementation is under-resourced (Holmes and Akinrimisi 2012). Another problem is that individuals bear the bulk of health costs through out-of-pocket expenses. There is poor access to quality public health services, as the private sector provides most services.
