The National Primary Health Care Development Agency (NPHCDA), is a parastatal of Nigeria’s Federal Ministry of Health with the mandate to:

  • Providing support to the National Health Policy for the development of Primary Health Care.
  • Providing technical support for planning, management and implementation of Primary Health Care.
  • Mobilizing resources nationally and internationally for the development of Primary Health Care
  • Providing support for monitoring and evaluation of the National Health Policy.
  • Promoting health manpower development needed for Primary Health Care through orientation and continuing education.

  • Promoting Health System Research by promoting and supporting problem-oriented health system research.

NPHCDA’s statement of purpose rightly captures the preferred future as “making Nigerians healthy”.
