Nigeria Health Sector
Like we have a 3-tier system of government, Different sections of the health sector are taken care of by the three tiers of government, the local government, state government and federal government.

And there are also private healthcare institutions.

Federal Medical Centres are often confused for teaching hospitals by many.
Although they are the same in some cases but not always. The two differs in several ways of operation.
Federal Medical Centres always have greater capacities to cater for the various needs of the citizens at a go much more than other teaching hospitals that are not federal.
