Aigboje Aig-Imoukhuede, Nigerian multimillionaire and founder of the Aig-Imoukhuede Foundation, a public-sector focused philanthropic organization and his wife, Ofovwe, has donated N2.3 billion ($5 million) to healthcare sectors in Africa. The donation was given towards enhancing healthcare in Africa and fostering actions that contribute to beneficial outcomes for Africans.

The multimillionaire made the announcement during the recent Africa-UK Health Summit in London. He said the funds would be channeled towards supporting the Private Sector Health Alliance of Nigeria’s (PSHAN) ground-breaking initiative and the Adopt a Healthcare Facility Program (ADHFP). 

This is fostered on establishing a one world-class primary healthcare in each of the 774 local governments in Nigeria, providing access to affordable primary healthcare.

According to Aig-Imoukhuede, the donation is intended to get the equipment, staff, and medicine to deliver complete community services for five years on all healthcare centers.

Aig-Imoukhuede presented a speech at the summit  titled, “Health Financing and Role of Business.” In his remarks, he noted that African governments need to increase their per capita spending to address healthcare challenges.
