Tuesday, October 8, 2013

Plateau State Commissioner for Health, Dr. Fom Dakwak, called for collaboration among doctors to improve healthcare delivery in the country.

Dakwak made the call at the launch of Apollo Global Doctors Network-West Africa, in Lagos.

The Global Doctors Network is an initiative of Apollo Hospitals Group based in India, launched to open medical fraternity with doctors in Nigeria and other West African countries.

The initiative also aimed at sharing experiences on medical innovation and advancement in medical research and access to world-class clinical training and cutting-edge technologies, geared toward quality patient care and saving lives.

Dakwak said that the health sector was a dynamic sector with constant changes in technology and applications.

According to him, only collaboration and exchange of ideas with medical experts from developed countries will boost the nation’s health sector.

“Nigerian doctors outside Nigeria are performing well because they have facilities to work with.
“Now that Apollo Group is here, I implore our doctors to utilise every opportunity within the fraternity to boost and improve our health system.
