The stakeholders meeting organized by the Health Facility Monitoring and Accreditation Agency (HEFAMAA) of the Lagos State Ministry of Health at Lagos Chamber of Commerce and Industry (LCCI) on the 14th December 2022 was a signal that the Ministry is finally kicking off the long awaited HEFAMAA Franchise.

The gathering was an interactive forum between the Heads of the Associations and the franchise companies.

The Executive Secretary of HEFAMAA, Dr Abiola Idowu told the participants that the agency is not ceding her power to the franchisee but bringing them on board to expand their coverage.
