What an expensive something! Health Minister says Nigeria needs $1bn to fight Meningitis

“The vaccine is scarce and very expensive. If we are to vaccinate people in the affected states, we will need to vaccinate about 21 million people. That will cost us about $1 billion dollars. That is a huge amount of money. If we want to vaccinate in local governments that are most affected, it will cost about $6.5 million. We must re-strategise. Part of the suggestion is to have an immunisation trust fund.” - Prof . Isaac Adewole, Nigeria's Health Minister

We can on our parts take personal precautions to complement the efforts of the FG in combating the outbreak of Type C Meningitis.

We overcame Ebola, this too shall pass...
