Dr Anenga said the health care system as we had today was a product of efforts over the years to solve the challenges bedevilling the sector, however, said there was more that needed to be done.

He lauded the efforts of the Executive Governor of Benue State, His Excellency, Governor Samuel Ortom over his giant strides in the Health sector including the ongoing renovation of the ward block at the Benue State University Teaching Hospital, five General Hospitals and also some Primary Healthcare facilities.

The NMA Chairman, however, said, the issues of remuneration of healthcare workers especially doctors needed to be taken seriously to prevent the brain drain of health doctors from state employment to federal institutions, overseas or other greener pastures.
