Press Release - October 2016

The Paediatric Association of Nigeria (PAN), a non-governmental, apolitical, not-for-profit professional association of medical doctors, who are specialists in the care of children; commends the Federal Government of Nigeria for securing the release of 21 of the kidnapped Chibok schoolgirls from their Boko Haram captors. It would be recalled that this group of young girls, were among the over 200 girls kidnapped from their school dormitories in the town of Chibok that triggered international condemnation more than two years ago. The PAN, therefore, extols the tireless effort of the Government to secure the freedom of all the girls. The news is a welcome development as the association identify with the parents of the girls and other Nigerians who have not given up in their campaigns, to keep in our national consciousness, the plight of the kidnapped girls and the need to do everything possible to ensure they are safely released and returned to their parents. As an association of child health professionals, we understand that the rescued girls will need medical, psychological and social rehabilitation for them to be able to integrate back to the society and live healthily. We, therefore, call on the Federal Government to make use of the great specialists and professional human capital base within the association in facilitating a smooth and full rehabilitation of the rescued Nigerian girls. As an association, our members are currently rendering medical care and support to children in Maiduguri, North East of Nigeria. On all fronts and in all that relates to the health of children in the country, the Paediatric Association of Nigeria will continue to partner with the larger umbrella organization of Doctors, the Nigerian Medical Association, the Government of Nigeria and various national and Internal organizations for the effective and efficient delivery of health care services to the Nigerian child. Finally, the association will like to identify with families of the Chibok girls that are yet to be rescued, as we call on government and various international agencies to sustain the efforts at ensuring the release of all the other girls.

PROF NIILO HALLMAN PASSES ON - Jan 2011

Niilo HallmanThe Paediatric Association of Nigeria is greatly saddened by the passing away in January, 2011 of Prof Niilo Hallman. He was one of the pillars of international paediatrics, and an honorary member of the paediatric Association of Nigeria. He is remembered by various members of this Association as a kind man, a good friend of Nigeria who was very interested in paediatric education in Nigeria and indeed in Africa. His presence at the inaugural meeting of the Union of African Paediatric Societies and Associations (UNAPSA) in 1973 in Zaria, Nigeria is well remembered. Indeed in 1990, he facilitated the hosting of the international paediatric conference in Jos, Nigeria.
We as an Association honour his memory as one of the world renowned paediatricians of our time.
May God comfort his family.
