The Institute of Human Virology of Nigeria, IHVN has called on government at all levels to evolve more efficient measures that would revamp Nigeria’s health sector.

Chief Executive Officer of the institute Patrick Dakum told newsmen in Abuja that the health sector has yet to be transformed, 61 years after the nation gained independence from Britain.

He explained that health development and human development are measured in terms of longevity of lives, noting that longevity of life is related to wellbeing, health promotion, death prevention and treatment.

Dakum said Nigeria is yet to achieve much success in the areas of mortality and morbidity, he also observed that to address health workers` incessant strikes, governments should always provide for their welfare, as well as meet their demands.

The Institute’s Boss added that it was imperative for governments to properly fund health institutions and facilities, starting from the primary to tertiary hospitals.
