The National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS) is set up to operate as Public Private Partnership and directed at providing accessible, affordable and qualitative healthcare for all Nigerians. The Nigerian health insurance industry is faced with the challenge of developing a sustainable fees structure owing to serious data deficits pervading the Nigerian healthcare system and unreliable critical health statistics. Using the capitation payment mechanism the health care provider assumes that for a given insured population, the provider will cover all health care services for a fixed payment per member per month. However, in this arrangement, payments assumed equal risk level for all subscribers and this may encourage risk selection. This objective of this research project is to explore the development of risk-adjusted models for the Nigeria National Health Insurance Scheme. The study relied on healthcare cost of various diagnoses based on international classification of diseases and information on enrollment to facilities with regards to enrollees characteristics.
A major development challenge in Africa is the mode of delivery, and financing of agricultural extension and advisory services to smallholder farmers. Rural extension and advisory services are essential in improving the incomes of rural peoples.There is currently a large debate on what model of extension is most effective for achieving the various national goals of different countries. This publication analyzes the potential opportunities and challenges for innovative participatory and demand-led extension service models in increasing small scale farmer's incomes.Critical factors that have led to the success of the COMPACI program in increasing small holder farmers' incomes have been through the recognition of the public, private and civil society sectors in contributing to extension and advisory services. The roles and responsibilities of the different stakeholders in the partnership need to be clearly defined and understood. In considering how best to design and implement different extension models, it is necessary to consider the socio-political, economic, and agro-ecological circumstances in different countries and sectors.

This monograph brings together into one volume the cumulative results of eight replica and near replica case studies of managerial and leadership effectiveness, most of which were carried out in collaborative partnership with scholar-practitioners within a diverse range of British public, private, and third sector organizations. Subsequent multiple cross-case analyses have resulted in the emergence of a tested and refined 'generic model'. These research findings go against the grain of predominant discourse, they challenge many long held assumptions about the 'contingent' nature of management, and provide strong empirical support for the concept of the 'universally effective' manager within and possibly beyond the national context of the UK. The monograph is intended for use by professors and students in undergraduate and postgraduate programmes in management, organizational leadership, and human resource development(HRD), and also by critically reflective research-informed and evidence-based managers, HRD practitioners, and other HR professionals, who are particularly concerned with management and leadership development and/or with management culture change initiatives.
The availability of infrastructure plays a significant role in the quality of life of citizens of any given jurisdiction. Nigeria's huge infrastructure deficit poses a serious challenge to the country. The shift towards a Public-Private Partnership (PPP) policy by the Nigerian government at the Federal and state levels is a welcome development. In this Book, the author argues that Government must do more to encourage private investors in infrastructure financing, be consistent as far as policy is concerned as well as review the framework that currently regulates PPP in the country.
