"This conference will bring other nurses and medical practitioners in diaspora together.

"Every countries would be represented and they would come up with whatever problem they have in their health sector.

"They will come up with problem they have, we would be having representative from higher post that would respond to whatever questions that would be answered.

"So, many things would be trashed out; people will be able to identify problems and we would be able to proffer some solutions to those problems even right there at the summit or later.

"It would be a continuous process, it is not going to end at that summit. We just want us to be exposed and let Africa nurses what is being done outside. Let see where we are missing it and how we can adjust."
