The Paediatric Association of Nigeria says it will look into some of the research conducted in the thematic areas, in order to proffer solutions to health-care and nutrition problems of children.
The President of the association, Agustine Amoigberale, made the remarks while addressing a news conference in Kano, ahead of the association’s 51st Annual General Meeting and Scientific Conference.
Amoigberale said other sub-themes of the conference were, “Childhood Nutrition: The role of healthcare providers and policy makers”, “Critical care of the sick child: Bridging the gap” and “addressing the childhood immunization.”
He said it was pathetic to note that Nigeria holds the number-three position among nations in terms of worst indices of child healthcare, only preceded by India and Pakistan.
Also speaking, the chairman local organizing committee of the conference, Mu’utasim Ibrahim, said that Kano State hosted the PAN conference last in 1991.
