The Institute of Corporate Wellness and Public Health has said it will raise the total Health expenditure from 6.1 percent to 10.1 percent of the GDP and also raise healthy adult life expectancy from 46 years to 64 years.

Speaking at the World Media briefing in Abuja yesterday the chairman of the Institute Enitan Sanusi said “we want to help raise life expectancy to 64 years in Nigeria. We want to see a wealthy and healthy society where people will live beyond 46 years old which is the present life expectancy.”

The institute is creating awareness for the forthcoming Live Well Alliance for Nutrition and Medication Summit at King’s Fund, London, United Kingdom.

Sanusi said the purpose of the briefing is to seek support, raise awareness and give insight into the benefits, opportunities and values of attending of the Live Well Alliance London Summit.
