The first lady of Nigeria, Mrs. Aisha Buhari has given reasons why African leaders should process the investments of private sectors to investing in health to safeguard a proper channel for health care delivery among adolescent girls on the continent.

She said that investing in the women’s health will result in an achievement in both economy and the women’s self-independence.

She claimed that following the huge health crisis faced with the continent, the governments are unable to tackle these problems alone.

“Universal health coverage provides more than enough justification for greater involvement of the private sector in both delivery and financing of health care services,” she said.

Mrs. Aisha Buhari made those statements at the recently concluded 19th General Assembly meeting of the Organisation of African First Ladies against HIV AIDS (OAFLA) held at African Union Headquarters in Addis Ababa. This was tagged “Building on 15 years of engagement to harness the demographic dividend of Africa through promoting the needs of adolescents and their access to youth-friendly health services”.
