Healthcare development in Nigeria and West Africa is in a "backward state" and has been trailing the technological advancements of the healthcare industry worldwide. That was the view of human rights activist Beko Ransome-Kuti speaking at the recent 19th Medic Africa exhibition in Lagos, Nigeria. Dr Ransome-Kuti voiced concern that government officials are using public funds to gain their treatment abroad. "We are opposed to using tax payer's money to foot health bills of government officials abroad," he said.
