For the health-related component of the Sustainable Development Goals to be a reality before the 2030 deadline, the Federal Government must be ready to fund implementation of research policies to the letter, the Director General, Nigerian Institute of Medical Research (NIMR) professor Babatunde L. Salako, has said.

Prof. Salako who spoke during the 7th Annual Scientific Conference of the institution, held at the main auditorium, Yaba, Lagos, challenged government at all levels to walk the talk on research, saying it is good to form policies on research, but it is better if these policies are thoroughly implemented for the benefits of the masses.

The NIMR boss who regretted the inability of Nigeria to achieve all the health components of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), expressed optimism in attaining the health-related SDGs if the government shows special interest in implementation and evaluation of the health system.
