Who provides Health Care in Nigeria?
Health care in Nigeria is provided by University Teaching Hospitals, State run General Hospitals, local clinics or private medical companies. If you find yourself struck down by some nasty disease or illness chances are you will be cared for by some highly qualified and experienced Doctors and nurses.
A National Health Insurance Scheme was established by the government in 1999 to improve access to good health care services, reduce the financial burden of medical bills and ensure the availability of funds for the health sector. Contributors to the scheme include Government employees and registered private sector companies.
Private health care providers are concentrated in areas where people can afford it. For example in Lagos, Ikoyi has the highest density of private clinics in the State.
