It has been established, the world over, that access to healthcare is not only a moral imperative but an economic one, as the well-being of a people lays the foundation for viable economic development and growth.

TAPI’s research focusses on the underlying structures of the Nigerian primary healthcare system in order to ascertain the factors that contribute to its low performance. Financial constraints, structural deficiencies, policies, and constitutional aspects are carefully assessed. Additionally, sub-factors such as cultural perception and general acceptance of non-traditional methods of healthcare are examined.

In keeping with TAPI’s methodology, the interconnections between health and economic development are analysed and appropriate interventions recommended.
