The Capital Market Solicitors Association (CMSA) Presents Its 2020 Virtual Annual Business Luncheon: Financial Opportunities In the Capital Market – An Aid to Improving the Nigerian Healthcare Sector
Similar to any other form of organized economic activity, easy access to capital is important for the efficient delivery of high quality medical services in any healthcare sector worldwide. The Nigerian healthcare sector has faced numerous challenges ranging from poor funding and inadequate health infrastructure to a great loss in revenue of over 1Billion USD annually from medical tourism. Historically, it has been funded through budget allocation, grants, donor contributions etc., however, the global economy and healthcare sectors worldwide are in recovery in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, with the challenges of the Nigerian healthcare sector being brought to bear once again.
As we navigate the new normal, the Capital Market Solicitors Association, through its flagship event, Annual Business Luncheon, brings together solicitors, regulators, capital market operators and other participants in the sector to examine topical issues affecting the capital market. The Theme for this year’s Business Luncheon is “Financial opportunities in the Capital Market – an aid to improving the Nigerian Healthcare Sector”, to analyze the current state of the Nigerian healthcare sector in relation to COVID-19 and the role to be played by the capital market in ensuring the easy access to structured, long term capital as a driver for the sustainable growth and development of an inefficient healthcare sector.
