  • Editor's Note

    Today the possibilities for a sociology journal are almost limitless. The first sociology journals reflected the needs of scholars of the time. But sociology, its place in the world, and the dissemination of information has changed utterly. So in starting afresh, what a new sociology journal should retain and what it should offer to the audience are important issues to consider.

Health Sector Development and Sustainability in Nigeria Using The Resilient Health Systems Framework


Health care delivery in Nigeria is complex and dependent on several determinants of health. While, re-emerging health threats such as the Ebola which occurred in Nigeria and some other parts of West Africa in 2014 have given rise to the need to understand what it means for a health system to be resilient. Although the present health system in Nigeria remains less resilient, the work of Kruk, Myers, Varpilah, and Dahn (2015) on resilient health systems (RHS) framework is beneficial to develop and sustain it.

The resilient health systems framework offers insights on the need for health systems to be aware, diverse, self-regulating, integrated and adaptive in their approach to public health and primary care matters. This paper focuses on how Nigeria can develop, strengthen and sustain its health system by becoming more resilient using the RHS framework.

 Keywords: RHS framework, health sector development and sustainability, health systems strengthening, public health and primary care, Nigeria.
