In fulfilment of its corporate social investment initiative pillars in Education, Economic Empowerment and Health, Stanbic IBTC Bank PLC, a subsidiary of Stanbic IBTC Holdings PLC, continued to partner with stakeholders in the Nigerian healthcare sector to further strengthen the system and give Nigerians access to quality and affordable healthcare

Wole Adeniyi, Chief Executive, Stanbic IBTC Bank PLC, pointed out that asides from taking part in various strategic partnerships with healthcare providers in the country, the organisation had so far contributed over N10.2 billion to boost the growth of the sector.

According to Wole, Stanbic IBTC Bank had contributed immensely to growing the Nigerian healthcare sector in several ways, including through the CBN Healthcare Sector Loan, which made available flexible loan facilities to stakeholders.
