The 8th Edition of the Future of Health Conference is here, themed: “The Political Economy of Health: Investing in the Future of Nigeria”. Our aim is to provide a visible high-level platform for key stakeholders in policy, governance, economics, and healthcare to discuss the factors that influence Nigeria’s health policies; how political, social, and economic factors shape individual and population health outcomes; health service development within the economic and political context; and how to create a national health service that meets the needs of all Nigerians. The 2023 general elections have presented us with a unique opportunity to push healthcare up the political agenda, which we must take advantage of if we are to make any meaningful progress towards achieving Universal Health Coverage and if we want to see an improvement in Nigeria’s health sector and health indices. Healthcare needs to take its rightful place of prominence alongside the economy, security, and other priority issues in the political agenda. We invite you to join us as we discuss ways in which to push healthcare to take its place of prominence alongside other priority issues in the political agenda.
