Healthcare in Nigeria is plagued with several challenges. There’s a low doctor to patient ratio, 1:5100, and a lack of hospital beds, 5 beds per 10,000 people. The challenges are well documented with far-reaching consequences. Maternal mortality in Nigeria remains one of the highest in the world, with 800 deaths for every 100,000 live births.

Within the past decade, there has been an emergence of health entrepreneurs who are using technology and the internet to address some of the nation’s health problems. We are putting together a map and analysis of the health sector that examines the healthcare landscape and the solutions that these healthtech innovators are bringing to bear on the problems of access to quality and affordable healthcare in Nigeria.

If you are innovating around the healthcare space in Nigeria, we would like to hear from you.

Our goal is to ensure that we paint an accurate picture of the healthtech sector and provide actionable insights for investors, policymakers and healthtech entrepreneurs. Sign up here before November 30 to help us learn about your startup and to join us in achieving this goal.

The vice presidential debate is over and Nigerian Twitter is awash with comments about how smart some of the candidates’ responses were and how some others simply fell hand. Anticipation ahead of the elections is building just as is excitement around the potential usefulness of blockchain technology across various fields. Sadly, some of us may not even get the chance to cast a vote next year.

As far as I can recall, I’ve owned seven phones in the last nine years, four of which forcefully ended up with people who needed them more than I did. Out of the remaining three, I recall handing one down to a younger sibling and disposing another in a waste bag during spring cleaning. I haven’t given much thought to where my current phone will end up when it no longer serves its purpose. Until now.
