WHO Urges Nigeria to Improve Patients’ Safety

According to Daily Trust, the World Health Organisation (WHO) has called for improved efforts towards patient safety in Nigeria.

WHO Country Representative to Nigeria, Dr Wondimagegnehu Alemu made the call yesterday during a national healthcare management conference on patient safety in Abuja.

He said the present situation showed that there was more work to be done to achieve patient safety in Nigeria and in Africa.

“The burden of unsafe health care delivery is huge, not only to the patient but to the healthcare system and to the nation in the long run, as it results in loss of confidence in the health care system,” he said.
