FG advocates adoption of improved surgical procedures in Nigeria

The federal government is advocating improved surgical procedures as part of efforts to improve the delivery of quality healthcare services in the country.

Health minister Ali Pate made the call at the annual meeting of the National Institute of Health Research Global Surgery Unit (NIHR GSU) on Tuesday in Lagos.

The NIHR GSU meeting is an international event that provides a platform for leading experts, researchers and practitioners in global surgery to discuss and chart ways for improved surgical care.

Mr Pate said improved surgical procedures would reposition the health sector of Nigeria to be efficient in its services. He said the institute, through its various contributions in the medical sector, particularly as the platform for facilitating the largest collaboration in surgery across the globe, is critical to helping Nigeria attain the feat.

According to the minister, Nigeria, as a member of the global hub funded by the UK NIHR, has recorded giant strides in line with its objectives and has performed well as led by Ademuyiwa Adesoji.

He assured the institute of government’s support in its discharge of duties, saying President Bola Tinubu’s government prioritises research as critical to facilitating development in the healthcare industry.
