The Nigerian Medical Association (NMA) on Thursday said over 600 doctors have left the country from 2016 to 2017.

President of the association Prof. Mike Ogirima revealed this during the body’s National Executive Council meeting for 2017, with the theme: “Exodus of Healthcare Professionals, Time To Act Is Now.”

“In 2016, a total of 227 doctors were reported to have migrated out of Nigeria,” the NMA boss said

“More often, the reasons are for better working environment. This has resulted into poor health indices for the country.

“Presently, due to the continued brain drain, the country’s doctor-patient ratio is one doctor to 4,000 patients. This is contrary to the one doctor to 600 patient ratio recommended by the World Health Organisation, WHO.”
