Improving health system curbs diseases – Ex LUTH CMD

Former Chief Medical Director of the Lagos University Teaching Hospital (LUTH) and a Consultant Public Health Physician, Prof. Akin Osibogun, has said that Nigeria needs to strengthen its health system to effectively tackle disease control.

He said this during a presentation titled “Emergency Response To Disease Outbreak: The Way Forward In Nigeria,’ during the 8th Annual Symposium of the Health Writers Association of Nigeria (HEWAN), which held in Lagos on Friday.

Osibogun stressed the need to establish ready infrastructure even before the outbreak of diseases, advising the government to ensure that it provides above average health infrastructure across all levels of government.
