The Provost , College of Medicine, Lagos State University Teaching Hospital, LASUTH, Professor Olumuyiwa Odusanya, gave the advice while delivering an inaugural lecture, entitled “health in the interest of the public”, at the main campus of Lagos State University, Ojo.

Professor Odusanya called for a paradigm shift in order to improve the health of the people, pointing out that the health system and services must make the people the centre of activities.
