With the laying of the foundation stone of the International Cancer Centre Abuja and the soon to be completed Justice Adolphus Karibi-Whyte Specialist 1000 bed Hospital Port Harcourt could it be that Nigeria is about to leave the starting blocks of reform of its ailing health care sector. I am delighted to see where private hospitals like the Lagoon Hospitals and Reddington Hospital are currently taking Nigerian Health care
I am delighted and hope that ICCA will be built and sustained even after this current administration and also will like to see the completion other Health care projects by the private sector like The West Africa Heart Centre Port Harcourt being pioneered by Dr. Ernest Madu of the Caribbean Heart Institute
Nigeria still needs more Cancer research and treatment facilities modeled around or similar to World class cancer centers like the Belfast City Hospital Cancer Centre that will be equipped with many Linear Accelerators, MRI scanners, Radio Therapy Suits, Isolation wards, In and Out Patient Facilities, Research Laboratories, Doctors, Students and Staff accommodation etc.
