The Min­istry of Health has called on the World Health Or­ga­ni­za­tion (WHO) to col­lab­o­rate with it to pro­vide qual­ity health care for Nige­ri­ans.

Min­is­ter of Health, Pro­fes­sor Isaac Ade­wole, made the call yes­ter­day when the World Health Or­gan­i­sa­tion (WHO) Re­gional Direc­tor for Africa, Dr Mat­shidiso Moeti, vis­ited him in Abuja. Moeti is on a three­day visit to the coun­try.

The min­is­ter said Nige­ria’s health sys­tem was be­set with chal­lenges and bur­dened by in­fec­tious and par­a­sitic dis­eases, adding that the coun­try had made lim­ited progress in ser­vice de­liv­ery in the past decades.
