The health sector is plagued by a number of issues including very low investment by governments at all levels, dearth of skills worsened by brain drain, and inadequate facilities. With a population in excess of 175m, Nigeria perpetually spends less than the WHO recommended 5% of national budget on the health sector. These factors result in massive outward health tourism by Nigerians to India, USA and EU countries. Recent estimates suggest that as much as $2bn are spent by Nigerians annually on health-related matters.

Diagnostic infrastructure in particular, are in poor state and very inadequate in numbers as a result of which many simple analyses and tests can only be conducted in few locations nationwide and in a country with land mass of over 1million square kilometers. Emergency services are either nonexistent or inaccessible to the average citizen. Doctor to patient ratio for Nigeria is very poor. Health insurance currently covers less than 8m Nigerians or about 8% of the population. A clear need to focus government’s effort towards catalyzing the sector is incumbent. There is also a need to encourage a lot more private sector investments across the value chain of the Health sector. Finally, electronic technology can also play a major role in awakening the health insurance space in the country as well as introducing efficiency via e-health offerings.
