The Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Elkris Group, Dr. Elliott Scott Omose, has observed that public healthcare management in most African countries remained poor and ineffective due to the faulty service delivery model and structure that governments and decision makers adopt.  He said for the teeming poor and vulnerable population in the continent to really enjoy accessible public healthcare, the current structural loophole with universal health coverage in Africa with the glaring absence of Basic, Accessible and Affordable (BAA) healthcare at primary level must be fixed.
