FG has disbursed ₦100bn to pharma manufacturers – Buhari


President Muhammadu Buhari says the Federal Government has so far disbursed N100 Billion Naira to indigenous pharmaceutical manufacturers and healthcare investors as loans to expand their capital base and boost local production of medicines and consumables.

He also revealed that Federal Government was addressing the ‘brain drain’ in the health sector caused by the massive exodus of medical practitioners from Nigeria to other countries.

He added that the Health Sector Reform Committee chaired by Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo, is currently exploring models for re-vitalizing the nation’s healthcare system, in ways that improve quality of care and the benefit package to care providers.
