Federal Government has vowed to fix brain drain in the medical sector by making emigration unattractive for doctors.
A brain drain is the emigration of highly trained or qualified people from a particular country.
According to the Minister of Health, Dr. Osagie Ehanire, the Federal Government will do everything possible to discourage “physicians’ brain drain” from the country.
I have heard the challenge of doctors leaving the country. We have plans to provide better funding for our hospitals in Nigeria and make such migration unattractive.
Ehanire made this known on Friday in Abuja after inspecting work on the new cancer centre at the National Hospital.
He said the hospital performed well during COVID-19 pandemic, pledging that the government will do everything possible to ensure that doctors will prefer to remain and work in the country.
His statement was corroborated by the Chief Medical Director of the hospital, Dr. Jaf Momoh, who indicated that the hospital has introduced incentives to encourage medical personnel to stay in the country.
On the new cancer centre, the Minister advised the hospital management to spend wisely, properly maintain the facilities when completed and seek alternative sources of funding.
He praised the hospital administrators for its prompt services to patients and advised them to be prepared for a possible resurgence of the COVID-19 pandemic as other countries are now experiencing.
Dr. Momoh noted;
Schools are resuming, people are travelling in and out of the country so we must be prepared for any emergency.
Also speaking, the hospital Board Chairman, Mrs Patricia Etteh, expressed regrets that although the hospital just celebrated 20 years of existence, it was still experiencing a lot of challenges.
Appealing for assistance to the hospital, Etteh called on the government to assist in making the National hospital one of the best health facilities available.
