Twenty thousand Africans travel to India every year for hospital treatment they can't get at home, so an Indian company has set up a hospital in Nigeria.

The Primus Hospital, staffed by Indian medics, specialises in lifestyle diseases and chronic complaints such as diabetes and arthritis.

Patients come from all over Nigeria and other African countries.

The Health Show is broadcast on BBC World News on Saturdays at 1010 and 2010 GMT and on Sundays at 0710 and 2310 GMT. The programme is supported by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
