Nigeria Sacks Health Officials After Baby Infected With HIV

August 4, 2006

Responding to the case of an infant who was infected by a blood transfusion at Lagos University Teaching Hospital earlier this year, the Nigerian government on Wednesday fired the hospital's chief medical director, chief medical laboratory scientist and an official in the hematology department. Some other hospital officials were sanctioned, Health Minister Eyitayo Lambo said at a news conference. The government had found "administrative and managerial lapses" in the case and will pay the full costs of the baby's treatment, the minister said. Nigeria began providing free HIV/AIDS treatment in January.
