The Nigeria Medical Association, has urged the Federal Government to establish a National Health Bank that would provide single-digit interest loans to the private sector for the establishment of world-class health facilities in the country.

The President of the association, Prof. Innocent Ujah, made the call while addressing newsmen in Jos.

Ujah said that the establishment of the bank would reduce the spate of medical tourism and increase the Internally Generated Revenue (IGR) of the country.

According to him, health care is very expensive, and that the World Bank will enable the private sector to get money at a reduced interest rate to provide health care facilities in the country.

He also called for the establishment of the Office of the Surgeon-General of the Federation, which will provide Nigerians with the best scientific information available to improve their health and reduce the risk of illnesses.

He urged the federal government and State Governments to provide a conducive working environment for health workers, especially doctors, to reduce the spate of brain drain in the health sector.

He also called on the government to form a team to critically address the issues of brain drain and medical tourism in the country.
