The Nigerian Association of Nephrology has said that 30 percent of Nigerians from 18 years and above are suffering from kidney related diseases.
The President of the association, Professor Babatunde Lawal Salako, said this at a press conference and opening ceremony of the 30th annual scientific conference and general meeting of the association in Ilorin, Kwara State capital.
He said there is inadequate number of Nephrologists in Nigeria to cater for those with kidney diseases.
“Presently, we have 400 nephrologists in Nigeria and ordinarily we should have 1000 nephrologists per one million population. And most of the ones we have are at urban centres making rural areas neglected,” Salako said.
