A former Chief Medical Director (CMD) of the Lagos University Teaching Hospital (LUTH), Professor Akin Osibogun, has said advancing the health of Nigerians in the 21st Century will require inter-sectoral collaboration to address the social determinants of health and ensure a resilient and sustainable health system.

Osibogun, who spoke at the Medical Guild Lagos 2023 Scientific Conference on Optimising Health Services for Nigerians in the 21st Century, declared that without addressing the issues of availability, accessibility, quality and relevance, Nigeria will fail to advance the health of its citizens.

Professor Osibogun stated that the inconsistency in adopting medical technology like open heart surgery, kidney transplants and stem cell transplantation to cure sickle cell disease and make life better for citizen patients is only testimony of Nigeria’s un-seriousness as a nation.
