In an attempt to ensure quality healthcare delivery in the country, a Japanese company, Nijap-Fuji Nigeria Limited, has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with University College Hospital (UCH), Ibadan.

The MoU noted the company’s Chairman, Mr. Kato Kazumichi, is aimed at bringing healthcare service delivery in the country to the same level as Japan.

He disclosed this while speaking to newsmen recently in Abuja

According to him, “Nija-Fuji Nigeria Limited partners with hospitals across the country in the supply of high-technology medical diagnostic equipment. The private public partnership (PPP) with Nigeria’s public hospitals will bridge the gap in healthcare delivery, especially in the area of funding.

“The PPP with UCH, Ibadan, and various intending hospitals will help facilitate the supplies of such equipment like CT, MRI, ECHO and others at zero cost. The terms of agreement would include purchase of medical equipment, shipping and clearance, installation, training on usage and maintenance/servicing.”
