DGI has distinguished themselves from some of the partners we’ve worked with in the issues around coming up with sustainable strategies around community health financing. They’ve also distinguished themselves, not only as a foundation but also in terms of a consult that we have worked with in terms of helping us to identify what we needed to do as an organisation in the areas of health insurance and we felt that we needed to put our money where we have found a solution.- Mr Obele Oluchukwu, Programme Coordinator, Christian Aid (UK) Nigeria
DGI has been with us from the start. Their impact is synonymous to the achievement that we’ve had because they’ve provided a lot of technical support and they’ve had funding from the Local Health Systems Strengthening (LHSS) project, and Christian Aid that has directly affected our outlook in and outside the state.- Dr Gaza Gwamna, Commissioner for Health, Nasarawa State.
