The Nigerian Medical Association (NMA) has commended the Federal Ministry of Health under the leadership of the Honourable Minister of Health, Prof. Isaac Adewole, for championing the launch of the Patient Bill of Rights.
The Secretary General, NMA, Dr. Olumuyiwa P. Odusote gave this commendation on behalf of the Association during her just concluded National Executive Council Meeting held recently, in Abuja.
