eHealth Africa received funding from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation to renovate three administrative blocks of three zonal offices in Bauchi, Kano, and Niger states, and the NPHCDA annex building in Abuja, FCT. The aim of these renovations was to address mechanical, electrical and civil engineering faults in the buildings and to resolve the perennial problem of insufficient workspaces.

To provide functional workspaces for the Nigeria Primary Healthcare Development Agency (NPHCDA) that enhance its ability to meet its mandate.
The National Primary Health Care Management Board is the foremost coordinating body for primary health care delivery in Nigeria. The agency has its main office and an annex building in Abuja FCT; as well as six zonal offices in each geo-political zone.
eHealth Africa refurbished the workspaces, receptions and conference rooms of the zonal offices and fitted them with furnishings and IT equipment. eHealth Africa also installed off-grid hybrid (solar and wind) power systems and state of the art data/ server systems.
For the annex building, eHealth Africa renovated the four floors of the building and first-floor extension. This involved upgrades to the aesthetics of the building and the correction of structural errors. The mechanical and electrical fittings of the annex building were also revamped to make the building safer/more comfortable for everyday use. These renovations create conducive environments for the NPHCDA staff and visitors to the agency.
In all four locations, relevant staff were trained to maintain the IT equipment and the office spaces.
