PharmAccess Foundation Nigeria is partnering with the Nigerian Healthcare Excellence Award (NHEA) to recognise and celebrate innovative healthcare service providers in Nigeria in the on-coming 2018 awards taking place in Lagos June 22. To this effect, they are sponsoring the award category – PharmAccess Innovative Healthcare Service Provider of the Year.
This was recently made public in a press release signed by Moses Braimah, NHEA Director of Strategy, Marketing & Communication. According to Njide Ndili, PharmAccess Nigeria Country Director, “This is our third consecutive year of partnership with NHEA, but our second year as the sponsor of the innovative healthcare service provider award category. Our motivation supports our core objectives, which is to promote innovation that improves access and efficiency in service delivery at scale, leveraging technology at an affordable cost without bias to your location, economic status or income level.”
