The NMA is worried that the Federal Government may not implement the National Health Act in 2017.
President of The Nigerian Medical Association, Prof. Mike Ogirima, expressed these fears on Tuesday in Abuja during the 2016 Physicians Week. Hear him;
“It is worrisome and the consequences are numerous. The implementation of the National Health Act is key to achieving universal health coverage in Nigeria. We are going to stage a walk in Abuja and march to Aso Rock and hand a letter to the President.”
