Speaking concerning the conference, the Chairman, Lagos NIPR, Mrs Comfort Nwankwo, explained that all efforts must be made by stakeholders to achieve sustainable healthcare in the country.
“Health and wellness were given special focus in the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) Envision2030, due to its strategic importance to human sustainability.
“However, evidence from the recent pandemic that ravaged lives and businesses across the globe have shown that much still needs to be done by government, Individuals, and corporate organisations,” she said.
