Wrong time to fall sick in Nigeria

In Nigeria, falling sick has become an even more painful challenge as the cost of essential medicines skyrockets, leaving many citizens struggling to access crucial healthcare.

Basic drugs, including antibiotics, analgesics, and medications for chronic conditions, have witnessed a staggering increase, doubling, tripling, or even quadrupling in price, creating a financial burden for patients in need.

The impact of these soaring drug prices is most severe on the vulnerable, such as those earning minimum wage, individuals without a steady income, and especially those lacking reliable health insurance.

The urgency to address high drug prices becomes paramount to ensure the well-being of Nigerians and prevent the collapse of an already overburdened healthcare system.
