“Our goal is to expand the talent pole for supply chain management in Nigeria because medicine access is limited in many rural communities, you find it difficult to have access to qualify and affordable medicine.

“We realized that we really need to transform our health system to make sure that whatever medicine you get in the Urban area you can get in the Rural areas as well and that will need supply chain management expertise.”
