History of the Nigerian Health System

This video captures a lecture on the history of the Nigerian health system. It deals with topics such as the organisational structure of the health system and the evolution of the health system through different political periods. The lecture is delivered by Prof. Benjamin Uzochukwu of the College of Medicine, University of Nigeria, Enugu Campus.

The video was originally created to go hand-in-hand with a session of CHEPSAA’s course Introduction to Complex Health Systems. This session deals with topics such as the historical forces that shape health system development, the social and political construction of health systems and the national and global forces influencing how health systems work.
