As WACS launches Wall of Fame

By Chioma Obinna

President of the West African College of Surgeons, WACS, Prof Peter Donkor on Monday in Lagos said improving the working conditions of medical professionals in-country will stem the tide of brain drain in Nigeria and West Africa at large.

Speaking at the official launch of its WACS’s Wall of Fame in Lagos, Donkor losing a surgeon after training in the region was a big loss, adding that the tide must be stemmed urgently.

According to him, the brain drain in the health sector was majorly due to poor conditions of service and family pressures.

“We will like to work with our governments to see how best this can be stemmed because it is a problem, the more we train, the more we lose them a problem is.   It is like pouring water down the drain.”
