President Muhammadu Buhari has himself been criticised for a long time for being a beneficiary of medical tourism.
The Buhari-led Administration is determined to ensure that all Nigerians have access to the National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS) and enjoy its benefits, said Prof. Isaac Adewole.
The Minister of Health who spoke at a press conference to mark the 2019 World Health Day on Monday April 8th, said the current government is determined to provide qualitative healthcare services for every Nigerian, irrespective of their location making it unnecessary to seek interventions out of the country.
“The government is trying to reduce the number of people who leave the shore of the country through the provision of up to date world class equipment,” he said.
He commended the government’s efforts in providing additional funding for basic healthcare delivery in the country, especially for women, children and the vulnerable.
