ABUAD Signs Mou With Dubai Hospital To End Overseas Medical Tourism by Nobody: 5:36pm On Jan 16
Afe Babalola University, Ado Ekiti ( ABUAD ), has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Aster Group of Hospitals in Dubai, United Arab Emirates to halt medical tourism abroad by Nigerians.

ABUAD Founder, Aare Afe Babalola (SAN), said the partnership will make the Afe Babalola University Teaching Hospital ( ABUADTH ) and Aster to sign a pact in the areas of training, consultancy, offering of technical expertise and in medical administration.

The MoU was signed on Tuesday, where it was agreed that Aster will offer short and long terms as well as permanent partnership for smooth take off of ABUADTH .

Speaking after the memorandum was signed, Dr. Navin Pascal, who spoke on behalf of the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Aster, said the hospitals has subsidiaries in nine countries and had been receiving over patients from over 90 countries across the world.

He said it was sad that Nigeria loses over 35,000 doctors to advanced countries due to poor remunerations, saying the trend has been affecting healthcare service in the country.

“Aster has become a referral centre in the middle East. Our partnership with ABUAD will be in the areas of training, technical and administration.

“What we will do is to train the doctors here so that ABUAD can be self sufficient in having experts that can perform critical operations that can make the rich and middle class Nigerians to see the hospitals as a better alternative.

“We appreciate the fact that ABUAD is working hard for humanity and Aster partnering with it will bring a paradigm shift in Nigeria’s health sector”, he said.

ABUAD Founder disclosed that a delegation will leave for Dubai in January 26 to perfect the MoU for enforcement .

Babalola said: “In this partnership, ABUADTH and Aster are equal partners. Though, we agreed for long and short terms, but the memorandum may be forever depending on its workability.

“Nigerians can’t afford to be spending so much on medical tourism and I have faith that this partnership will take the country will be a leading nation in healthcare services”.

He said the breaking down of medical equipment in critical areas like dialysis , oncology and cardiology was becoming embarrassing, urging Aster to bring in experts in biomedical engineering to train the experts in ABUADTH to prevent such from occurring in the hospital.

It won't still stop our politicians from seeking health care outside our shores.

in a the coming years, I won't be surprised if the quality of private universities in Nigeria doubles that of their public counterparts.
on a lighter note, if they bring all the hospitals in the world to Nigeria, buhari will still travel abroad for treatment.

Nigerians don't travel fit treatment because of lack of doctors, they travel because there are no equipments.

The mods that have refused to move this thread Mods to the front page should tell us the truth. Do they know these fraudsters? Are they working with them? Let us know. You don't want to alert Nigerians of sophisticated internet fraud. What is your aim in this life?

The useless cursed politicians will still travel abroad for treatment even if you bring the best facilities and doctors to Nigeria. Akpabio spend billions investing in some hospital in akwaibom, yet he travelled abroad when he had some slight sickness.

Just wondering what would have happened if our politicians invested their ill-gotten wealth in useful ventures within the country.

Nice one chief Babalola!!!!

Nothing doubles anything oo. Na lie. My brother goes to that school, he lays on the floor, lecturers don’t come to class because they claim the school hasn’t paid salaries for 5 months, no electricity in the school. We wait to hear from our brother. Because we can’t reach him. His phone is off almost through the day. How can hospitals function when no electricity exists within the school premises?
