Our Aim

One of the most significant impacts is the ability to address healthcare disparities, particularly in underserved rural areas.

Northern Nigeria contends with a shortage of healthcare professionals, exacerbating challenges in accessing medical care for millions of citizens.

Our Diaspora doctors, with their specialised skills and willingness to serve in remote regions, will play a pivotal role in mitigating these disparities by providing much-needed medical services where they are most needed; in emergency and planned hospital care across all medical and surgical specialties, including infection prevention and control practices, patient safety, clinical governance and risk management.

Key areas that we think we can make a big difference are: -

  • Recruitment and training of allied health professionals
  • Supporting advanced clinical practice
  • Developing and supporting patient safety initiatives

  • Calling on Doctors to Join Our Medical Journey


Economically, Diaspora doctors inject vitality into the healthcare sector by investing in infrastructure, establishing private practices, and supporting medical education institutions.

This not only stimulates economic growth but also creates job opportunities and fosters the professional development of local talent. With this, we anticipate the Government's acknowledgement being favourable.

The CMF is adamant that the government and the medical community must work together to address the severe healthcare issues that have dogged Northern Nigeria for years. A strong relationship between the government's visionary leadership and the passion, commitment, and drive of the CMF membership will start to bring about real healthcare transformation.
