Global Health Project and Resources has said that it decided to establish the Nigerian Healthcare Excellence Awards in collaboration with Anadach Group, USA, because of the need to promote quality healthcare in the country.
The organisers of the NHEA gave the explanation while calling for nominations for the fifth edition of the event.
The NHEA Director of Strategy, Marketing and Communication, Moses Braimah, in a statement, said, “The NHEA will continue to provide a virile platform for proper recognition, reward and celebration of successes, innovations, growth and excellence in Nigeria’s health sector.
“Moreover, we have observed that the award has been able to stimulate quality improvement and innovation in the health sector leading to improved service delivery and management of key health issues and the capacity of individuals to influence and set new performance standards in Nigeria and beyond.”
Similarly, the Project Director, Dr. Wale Alabi, declared, “The NHEA 2018 being the fifth edition will be bigger and very exciting considering the increased activities in the Nigeria healthcare sector in the last one year as well as increased popularity and acceptance of the award by stakeholders within and outside Nigeria.”
