Welcome to the PharmAccess Nigeria office

A thriving office in Lagos leading healthcare programs across Nigeria.

The Nigeria office opened in 2007…

with a vision to increase access to affordable and better healthcare for people in Sub Saharan Africa. Today, the Nigeria office is thriving with a multidisciplinary team of medical doctors, nurses, and other specialists.

PharmAccess mobilizes public and private resources for the benefit of healthcare providers and patients through a combination of health insurance, loans to healthcare providers, quality standards, provider services, and mHealth innovations that are tested in the PharmAccess mHealth lab.

Our support activities are grouped into four work packages:

  • Regulatory support to the State Provider Accreditation & Empanelment Agency
  • Demand-side financing activities
  • Provider Assessment & Capacity Building of State Quality Assurance Teams
  • Access to Finance Framework to encourage private sector participation in the management of government owned primary healthcare Centres

Our goal is to provide technical assistance to states seeking to operationalize their mandatory health insurance law; deepen engagements with federal and state Ministries of Health and primary healthcare development agencies to scale SafeCare methodology in Nigeria; leverage on the digital and mobile technology innovations to achieve scale; work with the state government to design and roll out the Access to Finance Scheme for Health SMEs under a Public-Private Partnership (PPP) arrangement.

From our Lagos office, we offer a range of healthcare services including:

Partnerships that make a difference

“I tried to get a loan from a bank before, but it didn’t work out. The interest rate was very high, it was just too expensive. Then I heard about Medical Credit Fund. Through them, I was able to get my first affordable loan from Diamond Bank. We really needed to expand our stock to meet the growing demand from clients for both over-the-counter and prescription drugs.

We also renovated the place – I invested in good shelves, made more room for displays and put more products at eyelevel. We installed new lighting, retiled the floor and painted the whole pharmacy. Since then, we have had a steady growth of clients and revenues. We used to have between 95 and 120 walk-ins a day, but now we see about 170 clients. Some days, it can even be up to 200. As a community pharmacy, we play an important role. For a lot of people in Nigeria, the pharmacy is the first line of care when you’re sick.”

– Mrs. Ada Okorie, owner and manager of Julie Harrison Pharmacy
