He said the idea was to ensure people of the state accessed medical care within the state rather than abroad.

He said, “The issue of the state tourism is not just establishing, but a process. There won’t be a time you will say it has been established.”

Earlier, State Chapter and Southeast Chairman  of NMA, Dr Jude Onyekwele said the meeting would offer opportunity to brainstorm on new developments in the healthcare delivery and bring discussions to bear on the health of the people.

In his opening remarks, Chairman of the event, Dr Emma Emelumadu said Nigeria seriously lagged behind in issy if Tissues and Organ Donation, which he said formed important part of of success in medicine to the extension of human life.

Decrying the fate of medical practitioners  in the Covid-19 plegued world, Emelumadu said the event was a wake-up call for improved medical endeavour and situation that called for critical review for safety of practitioners. ###
