Speaking to the media, Pharm. Adebayo Alonge, Co-founder and Chief Executive Officer of RxAll, said the company is a trusted marketplace for Quality Medicines, adding that apart from the on-demand virtual platform at your fingertip, the company is also doing a lot to make sure that patients get first-hand medications across its physical network of locations known as RxGO in the Southwestern part of the Country. Alonge said, “we provide an authentication platform through which regulators/pharmacies can authenticate medicines”.
He noted that while substandard drugs are eroding public confidence in healthcare systems globally, RxAll has come out to bridge a major gap in access to quality healthcare in Africa. According to him, “our journey to the market is based on our understanding of the challenges confronting the industry and the people. We have created solutions to address issues of wrong consumption of poor-quality drugs and accessibility to appropriate drugs through the RxAll corporate brand that will ensure interface with all members of the pharma supply value chain”.

Adebayo Alonge added. One of these products includes the RxScanner which is designed for instant drug quality testing. This new and innovative device is designed to ensure an increase in worldwide access to affordable quality medications, and specifically, to identify the quality of prescription drugs in twenty seconds without destroying the sample.

Although RxAll has a busy journey ahead, the company is showing confidence in their strategy to ensure every Nigerian has access to affordable quality drugs.
