“The fact that Evercare chose to invest in Nigeria with the Evercare one-billion-dollar ($1 billion) emerging market health fund, truly confirms that we are seeing the birth of what will be one of the fastest-growing areas in the Nigerian economy. This will help us reverse the trend of outbound medical tourism and become a place of choice for a specialized procedure in healthcare.”

Also speaking, the Babajide Sanwo-Olu said: “The launch of Evercare in Nigeria speaks to what we stand for in our Government. We have an economic agenda known as the “THEMES” agenda and the second pillar of that agenda is Health and Environment. It is not a coincidence that we are aligned with this transformation in our health sector.

“We believe that health is one of the strongest human capital needs any government should provide and we are willing to create an enabling environment for healthcare providers to strive. Last year was quite difficult for us and even at that our health budget was the only one we increased because of the COVID-19 pandemic. This is part of the dedication we have for the health of our people”
