Demsy Terwase Audu, Takim Asu Ojua, David Gever Ishor, Christopher Azaager Abari


The paper examines inequality and social class differences in the provision and access to healthcare in Nigeria. The paper shows that the inequality and class differences in access to health are by and large associated with the erroneous conception of health in terms of its curative potency as against the preventive by the bourgeois class. Furthermore, a large part of the paper concentrates on the discussion of inequality in the provision of health care facilities in Nigeria, while at the time pointing to the regional and rural-urban inequalities and the consequences thereof. The paper concludes that there is a class divide and inequality in the provision and access to healthcare in Nigeria.

Keywords: Inequality, class difference, access, healthcare, Nigeria.
