The event will also see St Nicholas hospital celebrating among other things it’s international accreditation by the Council for Health Service Accreditation of South Africa.

The programme will be under the distinguished chairmanship of His Royal Majesty, Sanusi Lamido Sanusi.

The keynote speaker is Dr Desegun Abudu, of the Royal Orthopedic Hospital, Birmingham, United Kingdom.

The event will also feature other special guests and speakers from Nigeria

and other parts of the world.

Speaking at a briefing, the executive director, M.A.M Foundation, Mrs Bolaji Fati said the foundation has been at the forefront of helping the less privileged who suffer health-related and financial issues with different programs such as M.A.M. F Medical Outreaches, Teachers Training Workshop, Nurses Training Workshop, Support a School Project, August Event, Out-of-School Girls Empowerment Program, Girl-Child Scholarship Program, Theological Scholarship, Boluwatife Olatunji Support, Children’s Day event among others.

“Over the years we’ve had medical outreaches in Lagos State and Ogun State. Those outreaches were in downtrodden areas like Agege and Mushin. We took the doctors at St Nicholas Hospital and also made sure they were given medications during the medical outreaches,” Fati said.

Also speaking about forthcoming event, the MD/CEO of St Nicholas Hospital, Dr Dapo Majekodunmi, said the event would also address the recent trend of Nigerian doctors and medical workers finding greener pastures overseas.

“It’s a big issue and I am sure the moderators will talk about it,” he said.

“Like you said it’s a brain drain, everybody is leaving. I don’t know the statistics but we’ve lost a lot of doctors and nurses in the past one or two years. It’s very difficult to tell them not to go because there are lots of issues here that we can solve on our own. We try our best to provide a conducive environment for them to work here and to make sure they have the tools they need for their job and to make sure they are paid good salaries and we also make sure we keep training people all the time”.
