- About HealthMarket.ng
Authentic medicines are an essential part of healthcare, but for millions of Nigerians access to crucial and genuine medicines as well as reliable health information can be quite challenging. Hence, a lot of people tend to rely on their local pharmacists, families, friends and the general public for medical advice, diagnosis, prescription and even treatment.
Based on his personal experience in Nigeria and the United Kingdom, our Founder - Michael understood the impact of fake medicines in Nigeria and the challenges stifling small pharmacies in the country. Also, he realized the added value small local pharmacies could bring to improve healthcare in Nigeria.
Following his belief that, when small pharmacies are appropriately enabled, they can help reduce downstream healthcare costs, prevent diseases and promote healthier outcomes, he embarked on a two and half year journey to setup Africa’s first online pharmacy platform, www.healthmarket.ng. The platform leverages on modern technology and tailored processes, to efficiently improve the abilities of small pharmacies, increase their opportunities without compromising ethical and professional standards.
