Health Minister Launches ‘Doctor’s Stamp’ to Check Quackery
The Minister of Health, Prof. Isaac Adewole, has launched doctor’s stamp to check quackery in Nigeria. He said that the initiative would help in authenticating and validating doctors in the profession.
The stamp, carrying NMA’s logo, contains the name of the practitioner, identification number, year of joining the profession and other security features, which could only be seen through ultraviolet light.
Adewole, who launched the stamp during yearly general meeting of NMA in Kaduna, also said the Federal Government was committed to improving on the budget for health in a gradual manner.
