Presidency endorses Abuja hospital for humanitarian services

The Senior Special Assistant to the President on Humanitarian Affairs and Poverty Alleviation, Hon. Delu Bulus-Yakubu, has endorsed Alliance Hospital in Abuja as the country’s private health humanitarian hospital for effectively responding to healthcare needs for the vulnerable

Bulus-Yakubu, while giving the endorsement on Wednesday during a courtesy visit to the management of Alliance Hospital in Abuja, said the renewed hope agenda of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu is paying special attention to equitable access to healthcare services to all citizens irrespective of social status, which coincided with the four-point agenda of the coordinating minister of health and social welfare, where he identified partnership with the private sector as key to delivering quality health services to Nigerians.

She also added that, based on the track record of Alliance Hospital in responding to emergency services and rendering free treatments to vulnerable Nigerians, the presidency has endorsed and adopted the hospital for humanitarian services.

In his response, the Chief Medical Director of Alliance Hospital, Dr Christopher Otabor, outlines the array of free health services the hospital has rendered to Nigerians

He said the free surgeries range from knee surgeries to spine surgeries to brain and jaw tumour surgeries, among others.

He maintains that with the sophisticated procedures at the hospital, every year the hospital saves over one hundred million dollars in foreign exchange for the country, insisting that the hospital is poised to reverse medical tourism.
