Nigerian Govt Accused of Neglecting Non-Communicable Disease Care

The government has been urged to begin to strengthen the country's healthcare system by increasing awareness, providing access to care and treatment as well as budgeting more money for non-communicable diseases care and management. Reports have shown that hypertension, diabetes, cancer, HIV, and other cardiovascular diseases are responsible for the majority of Covid-19 deaths recorded so far in the country.
