The President of the Nigeria Medical Association (NMA), Prof Innocent Ujah has disclosed that the 40,000 doctors treating the 200 million population in Nigeria has thoroughly depleted.

He said this is because doctors are leaving the country in droves daily.

He said by the WHO standard, one doctor should treat 600 people, but in Nigeria one doctor treats about 4,000 people and that still depends on one’s location.
