Poor Nigerians with certain medical conditions requiring surgery, who could not afford the medical bills, have been asked to go to the federal teaching hospitals and federal medical centres for free treatment.
Health minister, Professor Isaac Adewole announced this at a media chat in Abuja.
The minister said the free treatment which is for the poor Nigerians, is being implemented under the rapid response initiatives inaugurated by his ministry in 2015.
So far, the minister says that about 10,000 free surgeries had been performed on poor Nigerians under the scheme.
