How are healthcare services in Nigeria?

Answer this Question

When we asked expats and global nomads about the quality of medical care in Nigeria, they replied...

"Nigeria's healthcare system is composed of both public and private services. Public healthcare services are provided by the government and are generally of lower quality than private services. The public healthcare system is largely underfunded and understaffed, leading to inadequate access to basic healthcare services. Foreign residents have limited access to the public healthcare system, as it is primarily intended for Nigerian citizens. Expats in Nigeria typically use private healthcare services, which are of higher quality than the public system. Private healthcare services are often more expensive than public services, but they provide more comprehensive care and better access to specialized treatments," mentioned another expat when asked about moving to Nigeria.
