The worldwide gains made during the 15 years that the Millennium Development Goals (MDG) were implemented, required a broader approach that would address the entire human endeavor referred to as the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG). It has been decided by the UN and other developing partners to support the global implementation of the SDG. A functional Primary Health Centre (PHC) can only be maintained by cross-sectoral partnerships in terms of finance, participation, and beneficiary equity. By 2030, India would spend over $14.4 billion on SDGs. There will probably be a sizable financial vacuum unless states dedicate a sizable percentage of their resources to the social sector, given the Union government's recent cutbacks to social sector programmes. High growth and redistribution are insufficient and uneven; it is expected that, aside from domestic income, private money will be an important source of funding for the SDGs. By 2030, Nigeria will require roughly $10.7 billion to carry out its SDG programmes successfully. The National Health Act (NHA), the actualization of the 15% State health expenditure, the efficient use of donor monies in projects, and the basket financing that some States currently have are all intentions to infuse roughly 1% of the federal revenue expenditure into PHC services.
In India and Nigeria, such relationships exist both nationally and globally, but the implementation process vary. They both operates state-driven primary health care (PHC) systems that receive input from various national directorates. The National Primary Health Care Development Agency (PHCDA) channels controls through the State Primary Health Care Development Agency (SPHCDA), whose goal is to ensure that primary health care is provided under one roof (PHCUOR). According to this study, each implementation model is effective for providing PHC services. However, strict policies that governs the implementation of activities, monitoring and evaluation will decide if the SDG on PHC would be successfully achieved in both nations by 2030.
