Turkey’s Health Ministry finding new aspects in Africa

From Sudan to Nigeria

Turkey’s Ministry of Health inaugurated an office in the Sudanese capital Khartoum on Thursday, in an attempt to ease the cooperation on health management between the two countries. Turkey’s Health Minister Mehmet Muezzinoglu and Deputy Prime Minister Emrullah Isler inaugurated the office, which will be used as a contact office reports Turkish Press.   TIKA has 35 branches around the world and runs operations in 110 countries.


Meanwhile the Nigerian Federal Government says it is committed to the provision of improved healthcare for all Nigerians, and to make this work, it has constituted a high level committee of experts to develop a modern healthcare infrastructure.
President Jonathan said this on Thursday while commissioning the Nigeria-Turkish Nizamiye Hospital in the Federal Capital Territory.
The President, who was also the Special Guest of Honour, told the hospital management that the commissioning was a land mark event, in line with his determination to ensure access to quality and affordable health care for the citizens.
He praised the management of the 80-bed private hospital for the noble project, which he said represents a significant investment in the Nigerian health sector.
A tour of the 80-bed hospital revealed that it was equipped with modern facilities that would cover medical areas like radiology, urology, paediatrics, cardiology, pharmacy and neurosurgery, to mention a few.
The Medical Director of the hospital, Dr Mustafa Ahsen and the Turkish Ambassador to Nigeria, Dr Mustafa Pulat, both said that the hospital was built to deepen relations between Turkey and Nigeria, away from business into health matters, adding that like any other private hospital, the Nigeria-Turkish Nizamiye Hospital was affordable to all.
