Experts move to launch mobile health facility in Nigeria
Worried by the challenge of overcrowding in Nigeria’s teaching hospitals, with an average of 20,000 Nigerians traveling to India each year for medical assistance due to absence of solid healthcare in the country, experts are set to launch mobile modular healthcare facility.
The modular facilities created by Alpha Mead Healthcare Management Services is aimed at de-cluttering existing care facilities, improving infrastructure and enabling access to quality healthcare in the nation.
The group Managing Director, Alpha Mead Group, Femi Akintunde, stated that though there are numerous challenges in the healthcare sector, they are not insurmountable as renewed creation, cooperation between public and private sector, infrastructure and others are effective solutions.
Speaking at the event ahead of the launch of Modular Healthcare Facility in Lagos, Akintunde noted that a report by United States Agency for International Development (USAID) profiled Nigeria as shouldering up to 10 per cent of the global disease burden; saying the situation was caused by lack of access to professional health workers and healthcare facilities, particularly in rural areas.
