“HERFON is an incredible nonprofit organization that is addressing poor health Indices and working towards improving them.”.
The Health Reform Foundation of Nigeria (HERFON) is Nigeria’s leading non-governmental and non-profit organization in the Nigerian health sector. In 2001, HERFON began as a Change Agents Program (CAP) initiated by DFID in collaboration with the Department of Planning, Research and Statistics of the Federal Ministry of Health (FMoH) to help develop the capacity of select Nigerians, including staff of FMOH, to initiate and sustain country-led health reforms. The program also ensured that skilled and well-positioned Change Agents actively developed and defined agendas for health sector reform (HSR) and policy development in Nigeria. Upon project closure in 2004, the foundation was formed by a group of reform minded Nigerians who came together in response to the deplorable health system and health status of Nigerians. The foundation aims to support and to help sustain Health Reform Agenda In the country. In the last two decades, HERFON has achieved admirable feats, including carrying out advocacy for better health outcomes, strengthening capacity of stakeholders for health reforms, forming partnerships with other stakeholders in the health sector and supporting evidence generation to inform policy designs and health planning in Nigeria. HERFON, whose members include influential individuals in various positions of authority and groups from various disciplines in the public and private sectors across the country, led Nigeria into designing and signing into law the National Health Act (NHA) in 2014.
