The statement clarified that the disbursement of funds followed the development of investment plans by each PHC in the state, considering the needs assessed before the project commenced.

Kwara State qualified for the World Bank IMPACTS program due to its investments in the basic healthcare sector, meeting specific criteria and fulfilling state counterpart fund payments.
