Buhari: How Brain Drain Affects Provision Of Quality Healthcare In Africa by BeeBeeOoh(m): 6:50pm On Dec 07, 2021
President Muhammadu Buhari says brain drain has created a gap in the provision of quality medical treatment in Africa.

Buhari said this on Tuesday during the groundbreaking ceremony for the construction of the African Medical Centre of Excellence (AMCE), a hospital project that aims to transform the healthcare sector in the West African sub-region.

The project is being implemented by African Export-Import Bank (Afreximbank) in partnership with the federal government, King’s College Hospital, London, University of Wisconsin Teaching Hospital, USA and Christie Hospital, Manchester.

Speaking virtually, Buhari said the “flight of doctors and nurses to other continents” and inadequate medical infrastructure have created poor access to quality healthcare and increased death rates from diseases such as diabetes and cancer in Africa.

“Cardiovascular ailments, cancers and hematological disorders have increasingly become matters of concern to public healthcare. These ailments are now the highest contributors to non-communicable disease (NCD) mortalities, representing more than 81 percent of all NCD deaths in West Africa,” he said.

“The World Health Organisation projects that deaths on the African continent attributable to cancer and diabetes are expected to rise over the next 10 years. The rising NCD burden coupled with inadequate medical infrastructure on the continent threatens the future of our people.

“This problem is further exacerbated by the significant brain drain experienced by the continent. The flight of doctors and nurses to other continents has resulted in a significant gap between the required treatments for NCDs and the available treatments and care.

“The above challenges combine to create a regional health market with poor access to critical services and low perception of quality of care available.’’

The president, however, said stronger partnership with the private sector will help in improving health facilities on the continent, adding that the AMCE, when completed, will provide world-class medical services at par with the world’s best hospitals.

He thanked the management of Afreximbank and all the partners for their commitment to Africa, and for the action-oriented approach to resolving the challenges that the continent faces on its path to development.

“The success of the AMCE will pave the way for future investments and partnerships in the sector while raising the local standard of healthcare and providing a blueprint for quality of services required to address Nigeria’s and Africa’s healthcare and economic challenges,” he said.

“The AMCE represents a return to fundamentals, and the understanding that there is no African development agenda without able-bodied Africans to execute our vision of transformation.”

On his part, Osagie Ehanire, minister of health, said all hands are on deck to ensure that the project is actualised in a way that is beneficial to all parties.

In his remarks, Benedict Oramah, president of Afreximbank, said the facility will contribute significantly to the provision of quality healthcare for Africans.

“The ceremony is one step towards self-reliance for Africa’s healthcare delivery. The project will pool world-class technology and global talents, particularly the African diaspora, to provide a full spectrum of quality medical services in oncology, hematology, cardiology, and general healthcare services,” he said.

He added that the AMCE will also engage in world-class research, offer educational services to develop talent, and catalyse the emergence of top healthcare delivery in Nigeria and in Africa.

Lorcan Woods, chief financial officer, King’s College Hospital (KCH), promised that KCH will do everything to support Afreximbank and Nigeria in establishing the new AMCE to become a beacon of excellence in West Africa.

Since they are not appreciated in their own country, while won't they look for means to translate their abstract theories to practical realities.

Give them better incentives and opportunities and watch them employ all their professional skills to pivot development in Nigeria.

Treat your workforce well and forget about them rushing out of your terrain.

If care is not taken, many will join the list. Since Nigerians has declared "OPERATION JAPA."

Economic factor is the main cause, people do migrate for a greener pasture, I'm not surprised that Buhari himself do migrate for his medical check up.

What has Brainless President Buhari provided to stop migration of health personnel in search of a better standard of living, quality of life, higher salaries, access to advanced technology and more stable political conditions from Nigeria? The answer is he has provided insecurity, inflation, political & ethnic divisions with unemployment and the brainless idiot is talking about brain drain. Well I no too blame the brainless fool na the idiots wey they support the brainless fool I blame.

Since you are the President what have you done to arrest the situation? Instead you encourage it by traveling outside the country to patronize and encourage the brain country. Is this one a Commander in Chief or Confusion in Chief? I guess we all know the answer.

Hope this man is not trying to insult our medical personnel? Hope he is not saying that most of our doctors, surgeons and nurses are suffering from brain drain? Cos the only suffering people here are our politicians. Their brains need to thoroughly examined.

Is bubu really this ignorant and dumb? When American doctors migrate, it's either for charity, out of curiosity or an innovative research purpose and not simply to make a living! But how do you expect naija doctors to work without adequate equipments under very bad conditions in horrible work environments with very low pay? I know we've always been stuck with bad leadership but Bubu's government takes home the trophy for bad leadership undecided

So, let's get something straight.! brain-drain is the cause why PMB travels to the UK more than eighty(80) times a year for medical checkups and treatments at taxpayers' expense for undisclosed ailments?.

It also prevents him from equipping and building viable hospitals.

Excuses! excuses! excuse! excuse! excuse!.

What a clueless and grossly incompetent individual. PMB is the most clueless, confused, and directionless president in the world right now.

A disgusting individual who is totally hell-bent on destroying the country and is succeeding.

Mark my words, very soon, Nigerians will be refused entries to countries like Cotonou, Togo, and Ghana if you keep electing extremely dumb individuals like PMB.

Wake people and do not be deceived. PDP and APC are two sides of the same evil coin, scrutinize the individuals before voting and forget about tribes or religion.

Scrutinize your senators, governors and hold them to account.

Hold them accountable and do not be carried away by the aura or charisma portrayed through stolen wealth. Stop bowing for them .

Most of them are common criminals who have no clue what leadership is all about. This country will not survive another PMB at this rate.

MAY THE CURSE OF BUHARI NEVER HAPPEN TO NIGERIA AGAIN!!!

At this point, I strongly believe it is PMB and his lackeys that are experiencing severe brain drains.!
