Amobi Ogah says the National Assembly with the specific support of the Members of the Joint Committees on Health of the 10th National Assembly will ensure increase in the Budgetary allocation to Universal Health Coverage and its counterpart funding as the case may be to bring improvement in the financial challenges faced by the system.
Hon. Amobi stated this today at a strategic retreat of the principal officers of the National Assembly for the development of the legislative health agenda in Abuja.
