Moreover, the conference stressed that there is a need for strong advocacy to telecommunications operators in order to support the adoption of Telemedicine and e-Health. A national committee for managing the adoption of such technologies is needed, and this committee should include administrative members such as the National Communications Commission, Federal Ministry of Communications, Federal Ministry of Health, and National Primary Healthcare development Agency. The conference confirmed that the establishment of such committee is necessary in order to adopt and operate successful Telemedicine and e-Health programs in Nigeria.
