At a recent press briefing by a collective of health-oriented Non-Government Organisations, under the aegis of Partnership for Advocacy in Child and Family Health, fearful details about the status of the health care delivery system of Nigeria were revealed.

…over 7.2M Nigerian children at risk of death

This was revealed during a CSO/Media training by Community Health and Research Initiative (CHR) with support from the Partnership for Advocacy in Child and Family Health (PACFaH).
