Thisday reports that …The Adamawa State Government, at the weekend signed an agreement with a German medical consortium for the construction of a N4 billion specialist hospital. The Governor of Adamawa State, said that when he was signing the contract with Munchner Medizin Mechanik (MMM German) group of companies for the delivery of a functional unit for diagnostic, operation and general medical purposes at the new Specialist Hospital, Yola, that he was committed to the hospital project as part of his administration’s determination towards the improvement of health care delivery in the state (Kai…I wished I was the one that brought in these guys!).

Anyways….we will be visiting Yola soon to bring you update you on progress.

But here on Nigeria Health Watch we continue to insist that the problems will not be solved by importing German firms to build our way out of our health problems. We have good hospitals already – if only we will manage them well. If only we can get the systems to work for the people…to manage the “smallest” of problems…

The article below requires no further commentary. It basically says that mosqitoes have run over the University of Port Harcourt Teaching Hospitals….

Mosquitoes! Maybe we need some German companies to put up nets and insecticides! We rest our case…

Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful committed people can change the world; indeed it is the only thing that ever has…Margaret Mead
