The Executive Governor of Lagos State, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has proclaimed that private and public partnerships will boost health outcomes. He made this submission at the opening ceremony for the Medic West Africa Exhibition and Conference held at Eko Convention Centre, Lagos.

Riding on the theme of transforming the healthcare sector in Nigeria, Medic West Africa 2019 brought together industry experts such as the Commissioner of Health for Lagos, Delta, Ondo and the Ekiti States, to explore how small and medium health businesses in Nigeria can become more efficient. Discussions captured the status of the West African Health Systems including the Nigerian Healthcare System in a changing world. Furthermore, the gaps, challenges and opportunities available to Health SMEs were highlighted.

In his opening remark, the Executive Governor of Lagos State, Babajide Sanwo-Olu said, “I have to commend Medic West Africa for this wonderful initiative. I have visited stands from both local and foreign exhibitors and am very impressed by the products and machinery on display at this event. Formidable interactions were also had with the exhibitors and questions were asked to the efficiency of the machinery and products on display. This is one of the ways the government is encouraging partnership with the private sector to grow healthy deliveries. We have an interest in such partnerships, as they bring about solutions for and in the healthcare sector. I must also add that technology is moving, and technology in medicine is the future. I am excited that Medic West Africa is in Lagos again. This is where the market is. This is where the conversations are being had. It may take us time, but we are moving.”
