Implementing a Preventive Health Culture
Significant disparities may be decreasing access to basic routine medical screenings and likelihood of adopting a preventive health culture in Nigerian communities at risk.
On the topic of healthcare service disparities in Nigeria, a published paper by Dr. E. Monjok highlights that while there is little or no emphasis placed on preventive health services, curative and "super-specialty" healthcare is prominent in a nation where the rudiments of primary care is poor or non-existent.
There is an urgent need for a grassroots movement to implement preventive health services emphasizing routine health screenings and primary healthcare in Nigeria, accompanied by efforts to improve the socioeconomic status of the communities at risk.
Please help us implement a preventive health culture in Nigeria.
