Public health is in danger – Physicians

The Association of Public Health Physicians of Nigeria (APHPN) has said public health is now in danger in the country.

Alphonsus Isara, President of APHPN, stated this on Tuesday at the ongoing 40th Annual General Meeting and Scientific Conference and Golden Jubilee Celebration of the association, in Akure, the Ondo State capital.

Isara identified the various challenges including the depleted human resources arising from the massive brain drain otherwise known as JAPA syndrome and medical products which are now outside the reach of the common man.

“Medical products including drugs remain out of reach for the majority of citizens as a result of policies and sundry conditions that have prevented manufacturing companies from operating effectively in Nigeria.
