Medical Information

Organization and Capability

The best health care in Nigeria is available in private and nonprofit medical facilities. However, even these facilities typically fail to meet U.S. standards. The quality of government medical facilities is unacceptable by U.S. standards; however, the government is committed to resuscitating its health care through systematic funding and revitalization.

Medical Personnel

The quality of health care providers ranges from poor to fair. Most physicians and nurses do not meet U.S. standards of training. Recent graduates lack experience with modern equipment and sophisticated procedures.

Medical Material

Nigeria imports the majority of its pharmaceutical and medical supply needs, primarily from European sources. Medical materiel shortages have hindered medical practice, research, and training.

Blood Supply

The blood supply is not safe. Blood-banking services are unacceptable by U.S. standards.

Disaster and Emergency Response Capabilities

National disaster management is not effective or functional. The civilian sector’s disaster management capabilities are poor to nonexistent. The military provides crowd control during disasters but no systemic medical response. The military currently has no resources available for mass casualty response.

International SOS Assistance (Nigeria):

International SOS has been operating in Nigeria since 1996 in both the Port Harcourt and Warri areas.

The Port Harcourt office is in turn supported by regional SOS Offices and Alarm Centers in London, Paris and Geneva. Click for detailed information

Social Factors

Little opposition exists to Western medical practices; however, many people in the country continue to consult traditional healers because of the absence of adequate Western medicine. In Muslim-controlled areas, there is some resistance to women being treated by male physicians.
