Nigeria’s Minister of Health claims reduction in treatment abroad


The minister said recent reports from health facilities across the country had shown an increasing number of Nigerians abroad on 'medical vacation', particularly in India and the Middle East, were returning home to continue with treatment. He said that the Federal Government was upgrading eight hospitals in various specialities, two of which were already on stream, to 'invigorate the government’s efforts at reversing the nation’s ugly trend of medical tourism'.
