FIDA Nigeria joins the rest of the world to celebrate World Health Day today. In order to mark this day, FIDA Nigeria conducted a Vox Pop interview on the streets of Abuja in an effort to test citizens awareness of their rights, especially those contained in the National Health Act.
The interviews were conducted at the Ministry of Health, Wuse II and UTC Market. Due to high levels of bureaucracy, the staff of the Ministry were very reluctant to be interviewed without approval from their bosses. However those that were interviewed showed low levels of awareness of World Health Day and Universal Health Coverage.
FIDA Nigeria will be utilising our Youtube channel and social media platforms to sensitise the Nigerian citizenry about relevant laws. With the dawn of social media and the move towards technology, media has become one of the greatest tools to effect change.
Hope you enjoy the video.
