HEALTH FACILITIES MONITORING AND ACCREDITATION AGENCY

 Academics / 559 views

Since the inception of the current administration in Lagos State, several attempts have been made to improve the Health Care Services Delivery System in the State. These attempts had culminated in the introduction of the Health Reform Agenda which is backed by Law. The main aim of this reform agenda is to improve the quality of health care delivery in the State.

A vital component of this process is the regulation of the private sector, a major provider of healthcare services to over 60% of the population. Hence, the establishment of a number of regulatory and monitoring agencies which included the Health Facilities Monitoring and Accreditation Agency (HEFAMAA).

The HEFAMAA was established in March 2006 and is charged with the responsibility of monitoring both private and public health facilities to ensure registration and in the near future, accreditation of all health facilities in Lagos State.

With the recent launch of the Lagos State Health Scheme, HEFAMAA has been given the responsibility of providing facilities that will be empaneled on the scheme by Lagos State Health Management Agency using some strict eligibility criteria.
