Establishing A Diagnostic Centre in Nigeria; The Opportunities.

The public healthcare service delivery in  Nigeria consists of different levels of public healthcare institutions, starting from the bottom of the pyramid of healthcare facilities and going to the top, an integrated; step up referral system with a network of primary health centers, community health centers general hospitals, federal medical centres and teaching hospitals.

Patients are provided advanced level of curative, surgical, and diagnostic services as they move up the hierarchy.

Primary healthcare delivery is provided at local government where the patients are treated for minor sickness, basic specialties, and minor surgeries.  General hospitals provide secondary medical care, delivering service in general medicine, obstetrics and gynaecology, orthopaedics, opthalmology, ENT, dental, laboratory and radio diagnosis.

According to a 2015 BMI report, there were an estimated 3,534 hospitals in 2014, 950 of which were in the public sector. These included 54 federal tertiary hospitals comprising 20 teaching hospitals, 22 federal medical centers, three national orthopedic hospitals, the National Eye Centre, the National ENT Centre and 7 psychiatric hospitals, which are overseen by the Hospital Services Department of the Federal Ministry of Health (FMOH).

The private sector is the dominant provider of care in many areas, accounting for the greater part of secondary care facilities. In 2005, the FMOH estimated that there were around 9,000 private health facilities, but information on their location and the level of care provided was patchy. Private health facilities are thought to include around 2,600 private hospitals and clinics.

Nigeria had an estimated 134,000 hospital beds in 2014, equal to 0.8 per thousand populations, which is well below the rate for the African region. The number of hospital beds is estimated to have grown at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 3.8 percent since 2009, slightly higher than population growth but at an insufficiently high rate to have a significant impact on the population bed ratio.

Diagnostic service is required for providing effective diagnosis of the disease suffered by the patient, measure the quantum of medicines to be provided, quantify the extent of cure effected, identify the medical sensitivities of the patient to avoid wrong/under/over medication resulting in adverse effects and to extend the research and development capabilities of the medical process.

Demand for diagnostic related equipment and technologies such as Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), Computed Tomography scan (CT), Digital X-Ray, Ultrasound, Mammography, ultrasound scans, as well as anesthesia kits and mortuary equipment have increased significantly since the introduction of the National Strategic Health Development Plan (NSHDP).

CT Scan machine is used to produce cross-sectional (tomographic) images (virtual “slices”) of specific areas of a scanned object, allowing the user to see inside the object without cutting while the ultra sound machine is used to see internal body structures such as tendons, muscles, joints, vessels and internal organs.

Endoscopy

Gastroscopy machine is used to see the inside of the gullet, stomach and duodenum while colonoscopy machine is used to see the inside of the large bowel and the distal part of the small bowel with a CCD camera or a fiber optic camera on a flexible tube passed through the anus.

According to research report, the diagnostic services market is expected to continue growing at 8.5% for next five years. This growth is likely to be driven by improving healthcare facilities, medical diagnostic and pathological laboratories, private-public projects, and the health insurance sector. Moreover, with the rise in health consciousness in the society and the rising burden of chronic diseases, the market would also experience growth.

SOLAR PV CELL MARKET IN NIGERIA: AN INVESTMENT OPPORTUNITY.

The term PV is derived from the Greek/ Latin words Phos and Volt. PV converts sunlight directly into electricity. It is environmental friendly, modular, silent and needs no fuel. Given the increasing concerns on the effects of global warming, PV technology is the preferred option because there are no emissions or pollution, it is clean.

Solar photovoltaic is emerging as a major power source due to its numerous environmental and economic benefits. Installations of PV cells and modules around the world have been growing since 1998 and recorded a tremendous growth till 2009. The annual market has developed from less than 1 GW in 2003 to more than 7.2 GW in 2009 in spite of the difficult financial and economic circumstances. After a 160% CAGR (Compound Annual Growth Rate) growth from 2007 to 2008, the PV market in 2009 continued to grow another 15% in 2009.

There has been a continuous development of PV in established markets (like Germany, US and Japan), an exceptionally good growth in Spain and the emergence of new markets, such as France, the Czech Republic, Portugal and Belgium.

Over the last 5 years, China has emerged as the largest producer of solar cells in the world.

In Nigeria, the level of renewable energy penetration, particularly, solar photovoltaic technology is still at a low level. Receiving on average 300 days of radiant energy, Nigeria is endowed with abundant sun. Nevertheless, about 75% of the over one hundred and forty million people still live without electricity.

PV solutions have the potential to transform lives across Nigeria, where a good portion of the population still relies on petrol and other fuels to light up their homes. Given the persistent supply-demand gap, reliance on captive power generation is likely to continue into the foreseeable future. The enormous investments needed to build the required electricity generation capacity as well as very high transmission and distribution losses on Nigeria’s electricity grid, are factors that makes PV an attractive choice for captive generation as well.

If Nigeria is to attain self sufficiency in power generation and distribution, then the government should grow and expand its role in PV adoption in the energy mix of this country.

Specific drivers for PV in Nigeria include the country’s rapidly rising primary energy and electricity needs, the persistent energy deficit situation, the country’s over dependence on hydro and hydrocarbon for electricity generation. These factors coupled with Nigeria’s endowment with abundant irradiation, with most parts of the country enjoying 300 sunny days a year, makes PV particularly attractive to the country’s energy strategy.

There is enormous potential for off-grid PV deployment, in Nigeria, based on real needs and benefits, in the areas of rural lighting and electrification, for powering irrigation pump sets, back-up power generation for the expanding network of cellular towers across the country, captive power generation, urban applications and highway lighting.

In practical terms one of the ways the technology is been applied in Nigeria is in the installation of an integrated solar powered traffic system and advertising billboard. Solar battery chargers are also in use in the country.

A robust PV industry in Nigeria would create jobs right across the value chain from R&D to manufacturing, installation, maintenance and opportunities for small entrepreneurs.
