Health care provision in Nigeria is the responsibility of the three tiers of government. The federal government coordinates the university teaching hospitals, the state government manages the general hospitals, and the local governments focus on dispensaries.
Consequently, the health care delivery system consists of a network of primary, secondary, and tertiary facilities.
Nigeria operates a mixed economy, thus, private providers of health care have a visible role to play in health care delivery. There are also mission-based health centres that contribute to the health delivery system.
